Stepping Up when the Legislature lets us Down

  • Print

June 21, 2012 I was really disappointed that the legislature played politics with our categorical block grant last week.

But what was more surprising is how such a large chunk of funding can be cut behind closed doors, without a public hearing. Could you imagine your authorizer behaving in such a way?! Maybe the Brown Act should apply to the state legislature too. . .

Thank you to all of you that called your legislators and the Governor's Office last week. Your phone calls made a big difference!
