Legislative Alert – Supplemental (STATE BUDGET!!)

MAY 25, 2021

SORRY FOR THE LATE NOTICE BUT THESE THINGS MOVE FAST AT THIS POINT IN THE LEGISLATIVE CYCLE!!

We oppose all of these budget bills listed below. Basically, they’re creating a 2.5% flat tax over 3 years, which will cut state revenue by $1.9B in the first year, more in subsequent years. With that, funding other state priorities and investment is entirely compromised.

PLEASE USE RTS TO OPPOSE THESE BILLS IF POSSIBLE
