MAC Call to Action: SPED Circuit Breaker Funding



We Need Your Help!

On Thursday June 6, the FY'14 Conference Committee members were named and negotiations began on the $34 billion state budget, with a number of key issues to be resolved before the start of the state's new fiscal year July 1.

One of those issues is the allocation for the states' special education circuit breaker account. The House funded the account at $235 million while the Senate funded it at $252.8 million.

We are asking that all our supporters email the conferees to ask them to support the Senate's number of $252.8 million for the special education circuit breaker account.


In addition, we also suggest that you contact your representative and senator and ask them to seek the support of their respective conferees for the Senate version of the Circuit Breaker.

For your convenience, we have listed the conferees and their respective email addresses below. There is also a sample email for you to consider to use as well:

Sample Email 

Subject: SPED Circuit Breaker Funding 7061-0012

Dear (Representative or Senator),

I am writing to ask that you support the proposed Senate appropriation of $252.8 million for the special education circuit breaker account (7061-0012).

Your support will provide full funding for circuit breaker and public school districts. We cannot afford to shortchange any of our students in education, especially the states most vulnerable children.

Sincerely,

Name & 
Address
