New York City's Cardinal Timothy Dolan and bishops around the state are lobbying in Albany for a tax credit that would help Catholic schools.

Dolan and the bishops met with Gov. Andrew Cuomo and legislative leaders Tuesday. They are advocating for a new tax credit for charitable donations made for educational purposes. The legislation would eventually add up to $300 million a year for education, with half going to public school programs and half going to scholarships for students who attend private schools.

The state Senate has previously approved a bill with the investment tax credit.

The New York State Catholic Conference is now asking state leaders to include the credit in the budget due April 1.
