On Tuesday, May 12, we received news that the Senate was recommending a cut of $409,000 to the RLC’s budget.
We sent this news out to our community asking for your help, but we just got great news!
It was a mistake!!!!
Somewhere along the line, someone misread or misinterpreted some numbers, but the truth is that the Senate has fully funded the RLC budget for the next fiscal year and have told us that we have their full support!
So, what’s next? Next, the House and the Senate Ways & Means Committees will form a joint council that will come together and reconcile the difference in their budget recommendations and make a final proposal to the Governor. But given that we are already fully funded in both versions, we should be good to go!
Please help us in thanking all of our Representatives and Senators for their support, and thank you to all of YOU who helped make phone calls, write e-mails and visit legislators in person to help keep our community going and growing.
