Dear Friends of Catholic Schools:

Urgent action is needed. Notify your state senator today, urging him/her to vote “NO” on SB 2236. Click on this link for instructions: Urgent Action Needed on SB 2236.

More than 50,000 families state-wide have applied for the new Tax Credit Scholarship Program. Over $45 million has been raised thus far. School Choice has very strong support in Illinois. Senate Bill 2236 attacks the new initiative that allows low-income and working-class children to receive scholarships to attend a school of their choice by tying the program to the unpredictable budget process EVERY year.

Your support is crucial. Please let other supporters of Catholic schools and school choice know that action is needed now.

Thank you for assistance.

Rev. John Belmonte, SJ, Ph.D.
Superintendent of Catholic Schools
Diocese of Joliet
