ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP)- Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan is taking part in Nonpublic Schools Advocacy Day.
It's scheduled for Wednesday in Annapolis.
The Rev. William Lori, Archbishop of Baltimore, is scheduled to attend. Rabbi Ariel Sadwin, director at Agudath Israel of Maryland, also is scheduled to attend.
They will be expressing support for the Maryland Education Credit Initiative. It would provide a qualifying Maryland business with a tax credit equal to 60 percent of its donation to education assistance.
The tax credit seeks to promote business investment to assist the state's public and nonpublic schools students and their families. No money is given directly to schools. Instead, it goes directly to families through state-registered nonprofit organizations.
More than 700 students from 11 Maryland counties and Baltimore city are scheduled to attend.
