California Legislative Action Alert: The Vote to Save Our Services is Set for Monday!

26 Feb

The California developmental disabilities community has been fighting a long and hard fight to regain lost ground in support for services. Basically, the budgets keep leaving us out and with inflation we keep losing ground.

The budget support is coming up for vote on Monday. I know I’ve asked many times for calls, faxes, emails, etc., but with luck this is the last time. Make it count–make your needs heard. Details are below in a letter from Tony Anderson of the Arc California and the Lanterman Coalition.

The Vote to Save Our Services is Set for Monday!
 
 
Dear Friends,
From everything we hear, we’re going to win in both the Senate and Assembly on Monday! We appear to have the two-thirds, bipartisan majorities we need to pass the compromise agreement to save our community services.
But just be safe, we’re asking everyone to make two more calls before noonMonday – one to your state senator, and one to your assembly member. Click here to find who they are.
As usual, if you already have talked to someone in your senator’s or local office, call him or her. Otherwise, call their Capitol office in Sacramento.
The message is even simpler than usual – just give them your name and address, and ask them to please vote yes on ABx2-1 and SBx2-2 to save ourt developmental services. There’s no need for confrontation at this time, we just need the policymakers to know we are watching close and we want their vote on Monday.
As we acknowledged earlier, the agreement doesn’t achieve everything needed – our community is going to need to stay united to fight for the rest iof what we need in the months and years ahead — but it is a critically important step to provide relief and recovery.
Please make two calls before noon Monday.
And thank you for your advocacy!
Tony

    I got some something here for you to blog about: http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:https://vactruth.com/2015/05/04/4-things-you-should-never-say/

    I use the cached version because I don’t want more traffic to that bad site.
    Personally I will DOUBT THEM and do everything in that thing to never say. so much pseuodoscience in that article to justify their beliefs but that article just prove one thing that their beliefs are sincere so matter how dangerous.

      Here’s one they left off their list:

      “Most parents who believe that their child is vaccine injured have been lied to. ‘VacTruth.Com’ is one of the liars. Believing the lies is the actual harm being caused to your family.”
