Word is out in Sacramento: there may be a vote on the state budget in the legislature next Tuesday, July 29.
We urge you to contact your state assembly member and senator before then to
communicate the following:
- Stand up for children!
- Support the conference committee budget because it takes a balanced approach and prevents deeper cuts to education and children’s services.
- Any final adopted budget package must include revenue enhancements.
Please call right away! It will only take a few seconds to lend your voice. If you’re feeling shy, you can write or type your message to your legislators and fax it to them. If you don’t know your elected state representatives’ phone, fax or address, you can find it here.
For more information and background on the budget and the Conference Committee’s budget proposals, along with more key points, see this Budget Alert from State PTA.
