Wolf says he’ll veto $100 million increase to EITC program

Just one day after the Pennsylvania Senate voted to send a bill expanding the Educational Improvement Tax Credit program to his desk, Gov. Tom Wolf has said he will veto the legislation.

 

House Bill 800, sponsored by House Speaker Mike Turzai (R-Allegheny), would increase the cap on contributions to the state’s EITC program, which allows businesses to receive tax credits for donating to scholarship organizations that provide private school scholarships to Pennsylvania students.
