14,000 Signatures for 14,000 Children
Release Date: January 8, 2016
Budget Update -- We Need Your Voice!
As you may already know, the budget signed last week included only $30 million in new Pre-K funding, despite the fact that legislative leaders have all agreed to $60 million (to serve 14,000 children in Pre-K and Head Start programs).
This "stop-gap" budget must be completed -- which gives us one final chance to ensure that legislators and Governor Wolf keep their promise to include the $60 million investment we are all counting on.
We hope you're ready to send a message that the power of Pre-k for PA is too strong to be ignored. The Governor's initial budget proposal would have exposed the power of Pre-K to 14,000 more PA kids. Let's send him 14,000 signatures in support of the compromised, but agreed to $60 million investment this year!
The budget impasse has put a terrible burden on those who serve our most vulnerable citizens. This is our last chance to make the pain of this budget impasse worth something to thousands of kids who were left on the negotiating table.
