The countdown to June 15th continues this week amid reports that legislators are working to compile a budget BEFORE the constitutional deadline. For us, this means we need to keep the pressure on our legislators and keep encouraging them to pass a responsible budget that maintains existing revenue streams, while at the same time voicing our concerns over a spending cap proposal that would lock-in low funding for health care and social services programs indefinitely!
Take Action: Attend an event or write a Letter to the Editor
HHS Network partners and allies will be holding two events targeting key legislators, Senator Sam Blakeslee (R-San Jose) and Senator Anthony Cannella (R-Modesto) to urge them to VOTE YES on a budget that extends existing revenues in order to prevent more devastating and life-threatening cuts to our health and human services!
