Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Corbett has vowed to continue the state program of tuition tax credits for private and public schoolchildren if he wins re-election to a second term in November.

Speaking to a receptive crowd at a private Main Line home on March 21, Corbett thanked those gathered for pushing hard to bolster the Educational Improvement Tax Credit, known as EITC, which gives tax credits to businesses that provide educational scholarships to help pay private school tuition.

The governor also expressed regret that he hadn’t visited Israel during his first term and said his “goal is to get to Israel in a second term.”
