6/12/17


ALERT SUMMARY:

1.  PURVIEW:  State (not federal)

2.  LEVEL OF MOBILIZATION:  staff, students, volunteers

3.  TIMELINE:  Urgent and Immediate
 

PROTECT THE SENATE'S $1.9 MILLION INCREASE FOR ABE IN FY 2018!  

 

-  The FY18 House budget funds ABE at $28.9 million. 
 
-  The FY18 Senate budget funds ABE at $30.8 million.
  
-  Because there's a difference of $1.9 million between the House and Senate budgets for ABE, the final amount is being negotiated now by a Joint Conference Committee.
  
We must protect the Senate's proposed $1.9 million increase.
PLEASE CALL YOUR SENATOR AND REPRESENTATIVE IMMEDIATELY!
 

-  Please call your state Senator and state Representative today and ask them to:
  • Urge their respective Senate and House colleagues on the Joint Conference Committee to keep the Senate's funding level of $30.8 million for ABE line item #7035-0002.
 
-  If your senator or representative is a member of the Joint Conference Committee (see list below):
  • Urge them to keep the Senate's funding level of $30.8 million for ABE.

-  Please also remember to thank your senator and representative for their support of ABE.

 

-  We have had a lot of support in both the House and Senate during the budget process.  Now's the time to keep pushing to the end so we don't lose the additional funding we need and worked so hard to obtain.

Please take 5 minutes to make your calls right now and ask colleagues, students, volunteers and others who support ABE to do the same.

      THANK YOU FOR MAKING THESE CALLS!
JOINT CONFERENCE COMMITTEE MEMBERS
