A Call For Immediate Action and Courageous Leadership for a Fair Budget
Tell the Legislature and Governor that the budget is not finished – it needs fixing!
WHERE: The GRAND STAIRCASE in the State House WHEN: Monday, June 30 (1:30pm) WHAT: Press Conference, Lobby, and Rally for FAIRNESS!
***All branches of State Government must take Immediate Action!
***Massive budget cuts, unfair taxation, and regressive fee hikes hurt working class families and the poor.
***The state is not broke! 42 tax breaks were passed in the 1990’s resulting in approx. 3 billion in annual revenue losses and gains for the wealthy.
***We must find ways to raise revenues FAIRLY, to fund the vital public institutions and programs of this Commonwealth.
