From our friends at the Pennsylvania Budget and Policy Center
The Federal Budget Conference Committee has been charged to come up with a budget plan by December 13.
More than ever, it is important to make sure Senators and U. S. Representatives know the impact these cuts have had on human needs programs. PBPC is encouraging State Organizations in Pennsylvania to sign a state letter showing their support for a budget that protects vulnerable low income families.
The letter, drafted in partnership with the Coalition on Human Needs, calls on Pennsylvania's Congressional Delegation to insist on a budget plan that ends harmful sequestration cuts and reduces spending on federal credits, deductions, and other tax breaks.
In addition, please distribute the letter to your state partner organizations to sign.
