The Executive budget proposes significant agency cuts as well as demands for wage and benefit cuts or 9,800 in potential layoffs. We need you to let your legislators know that more cuts will jeopardize state services, threaten public safety and have a negative effect on the state’s economy and the fragile recovery. The budget also includes a tax cut for the state’s wealthy. We believe there needs to be shared sacrifice and balanced solutions not just spending cuts.
Please take a moment to download the letter (Word version), personalize your message and mail it to your state legislators. The more personalized the letter the more impact it will have, handwritten letters have the most impact.
Also, if you haven’t provided your name and contact information please do so. This will allow us to keep you informed and communicate with you as quickly as possible regarding critical information and activities surrounding the state budget and other PEF actions.
Thank you for taking action.
