Last week, the House Appropriations Committee released a budget bill to fund the government for the next year which contains major proposed cuts to programs that help children and families every day. They are expected to vote on this measure THIS WEEK. Included in the cuts are:
Though different than the budget presented by President Obama yesterday, this budget proposal is just as important as it will determine how money is spent through the remainder of this fiscal year.
It is extremely urgent that lawmakers hear from you about how these cuts will negatively impact your community. Write your lawmaker now, let them know that you support these programs and realize the impact of these budget cuts in your community.
Thanks for your help!!
