ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - Critics of Gov. Larry Hogan’s education tax credit are speaking out against his proposal.

On Wednesday the state’s largest teachers union, along with ACLU-Maryland, Equality Maryland and the Maryland PTA are holding a news conference in Annapolis in opposition of a $5 million grant program.

The proposed measure would provide tax breaks to businesses that donate money to private and public schools. But opponents, including the Maryland State Education Association, worry that only private schools would benefit from the program.

Versions of the tax credit have passed the Senate in recent years, but have failed to make their way out of the House of Delegates.

In an interview with The Associated Press earlier this week, Hogan said the tax credit would be a part of ongoing budget negotiations.
