Rep. Santora Says Governor’s School Shutdown Checklist Off-base and Unnecessary - 3/8/2016
Rep. Jamie Santora (R-Delaware) has condemned a school closing checklist sent by the Wolf administration to Pennsylvania school districts offering step by step advice on how to shut down schools for lack of funding as both wrong and unnecessary. Speaking at a press conference held in front of the Upper Darby School District on Tuesday, Santora said the school closing checklist sends the wrong message to school administrators at a time when the money is actually sitting in the state’s accounts, waiting for the governor to authorize the expenditures. The administration sent the check list to the state’s 500 school districts after the governor personally line item vetoed approximately $3 billion in education funding in an effort to force lawmakers to reconsider his demands for higher spending and increased taxes in Pennsylvania.

Lawmakers called on the Governor to direct the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development to release letters that would allow Commonwealth businesses to contribute money to the Education Improvement Tax Credit Program(EITC) at a press conference held on Tuesday in Harrisburg. The EITC program directs more than $150 million annually to schools as a result of contributions made by Pennsylvania businesses. If schools cannot receive the funds by December 31, businesses will be ineligible to donate, and will look for other potential tax-deductible donations which don’t support children in the Commonwealth.
