State Budget Advocacy Needed Now

State Budget Advocacy Needed Now

As the lengthy 2009-2010 PA State Budget deliberations drag into their third week past the 30 June deadline, we need to continue our strong advocacy.img_19011

Please contact your state representative (if you do not know whom that is please visit or call Sally Jo (412) 456-1877 x203) and tell them:

  • “It most definitely is raining in Pennsylvania.  It is time to tap into the state’s “Rainy Day Fund.”
  • We must not balance the state budget on the backs of the most vulnerable.
  • Maintaining programs that assist persons to live independently and participate in community are significantly  more cost-efficient than cutting those services and relying on institutionalized care.
