According to Governor Cuomo's office, when Cuomo gives his State Of The State speeches next week, one item he will be promoting is doubling a child care tax credit. The proposal would increase the credit from an average benefit of $169 to $376 and would cost the state $42 million.

In a statement the Governor says this would benefit more than 200,000 families earning between $50,000 and $150,000. Cuomo will give one of his 6 regional speeches in Syracuse next Tuesday at 1pm.
