A new legislative session has begun and we continue to push for the adoption of the Education Investment Tax Credit, legislation that would encourage donations to organizations that provide Catholic School scholarships while also encouraging donations to public schools. We are asking for every member of your school community to help in two ways:
1. Call Gov. Cuomo at (518) 474-8390 and ask him include the Education Tax Credit proposal in his January 27th Executive Budget. See the attached letter from Bishop Malone asking for these phone calls.
a. When you call the Governor, you can choose to either leave a voice mail or talk directly to an assistant.
2. Email Gov. Cuomo and ask him include the Education Tax Credit proposal in his January 27thExecutive Budget. See the email below for the direct link to this NYS Catholic Conference “Action Alert”. https://www.votervoice.net/link/target/nyscatholic/MNRcPqPPR.aspx
Action Alert and the Bishop’s letter to your entire school community can be found here – Bishops Letter
We encourage Parents, Staff and School Community to call and email the Governor before January 21st.
