CAMPAIGN WEEKLY UPDATE: June 16, 2017

Call to Action

With two weeks remaining to the state's budget deadline, it is imperative for lawmakers to hear from their constituents about the need to invest more in our public school students.

The Governor has proposed a $100 million increase in Basic Education Funding, thought with a reduction of $50 million for school transportation. The State House passed a budget with the same provisions. We urge every member of the Campaign for Fair Education Funding to alert their networks and ask them to contact their legislators, telling them to support the $100 million increase without offsetting education cuts.

How to Contact Your Legislators

1. Find your state legislators, along with their Harrisburg and district office phone numbers here.

2. Call their office, and tell them this:

Both the Governor’s proposed budget and the budget passed by the House of Representatives increase basic education funding by at least $100 million. It is essential that this increase be part of the final state budget and that it is not offset by cuts in other education budget lines, like school transportation.

Even this $100 million increase, though it is welcome, will not keep pace with schools’ mandated expenditures over which they have no control. Anything less than $100 million will force many districts to make deeper budget cuts, including the elimination of programs and staff, and to consider higher property taxes down the road. Please reject any budget that does not increase basic education funding by at least $100 million.

3. After you have completed your call(s) email this message to your legislators, which is identical to the above phone script.

Thank you for your commitment to Pennsylvania's children!
