Charter Cap Raised, Education Tax Credit Not In Legislative Agreement

State of Politics reports that Cuomo and the leaders of the respective houses in the legislature have a framework agreement "in concept" that extends rent control and the property tax cap for four years while it extends mayoral control of NYC schools for just one year.

In addition, there is this:

The cap on charter schools will be raised by 50 in the city and 130 elsewhere in the state.

And this:
The education tax credit — which was being pushed by private and parochial school backers, including Cardinal Timothy Dolan — was not agreed to, either. Instead, lawmakers and Cuomo announced a $250 million reimbursement program for mandated services at private and parochial schools.

More as we get it.

  1. Heastie did not drive a very good on Cheater Schools--and coming up with $250M for parochial and private schools and conceding to Flanagan $1.3B in money to flow to affluent home owners--makes the rent deal look even weaker. Heastie and Assembly got smoked...light up phones don't let the heavy hearts concede for a second time
