Senate Budget debate begins today. Click here for CHAPA’s priority amendments. Call/email your senator and ask for his/her support (on the Senate side, senators can sign-on to amendments up until the vote). Find your legislator here.
If you are in Senator Rosenberg’s district, the other Western MA legislators have generously committed to representing your interests. Call Senator Lesser, Senator Hinds or Senator Welch to let them know your requests for sponsorship.
Additionally, Network priorities also include ABE/ESOL funding – Amendment #176 to increase funding from $31 to $33 million – and Secure Jobs funding – Amendment #525 to increase funding from $650,000 to $1 million. Senator Welch is already a co-sponsor for both Amendments (call to thank!) and the others should be contacted to request their co-sponsorship.
Thanks for your advocacy!
