ACTION ALERT! Call Your Local Legislator!October 6, 2015

You Can Make a Difference!

A critical vote in the state House this Wednesday could be the tipping point in the budget impasse.  Funding for Education & Human Services this year and for years to come is on the line.
The showdown will happen in the House. Lawmakers have a simple choice: vote for funding to reinvest in services for our friends and neighbors and restore education with a fair drilling tax - like people want - or put powerful special interests before the rest of us.
If our representatives do not vote to increase state resources, the alternative is unacceptable. The Pennsylvania Budget and Policy Center has determined that the Senate and House Majority budget will generate a  $2.2 billion shortfall in the next nine months, ending June 2016.  By next July we will have to cut more funding from education and critically needed programs -- by more than $2 billion! 
Now is the time for action.  Tell your lawmakers to stand with working families and the vulnerable. Vote to  for a balanced budget that restores funding and puts our state back on track. Don't forget to ask for $20 million in emergency budgeting for addiction treatment.
