Assemblymen WARNER, PRENTISS, WIRTH, FINCH, TOWNSEND, HOOKER
Multi-Sponsored by Assemblyman BURLING, CROUCH, NESBITT
This is a tax credit bill for education expenses, including those for a home instruction program. The bill refers to home instruction as a program providing substantially equivalent instruction to that provided in public school under § 3204 of the Education Law. Home instruction is conducted under § 100.10 of the Regulations of the Commissioner of Education, but the State Education Department considers compliance with the regulation to meet the "substantially requirement" standard.
This bill was introduced on February 25, 2003, and was in the Ways and Means Committee.
While the first year of the 2003-2004 session of the New York legislature ended June 20, 2003, this bill could be re-introduced in January of 2004.
This bill was supported.
