Please take two minutes RIGHT NOW and call your state representative to say the House must pass a budget that funds education and invests in Pennsylvania's children. By mid-day TODAY, Thursday, December 17th, leaders of the State House will make a decision about whether or not there are enough votes in the House to pass a budget that will properly fund schools, invest in human services, and close the deficit. 

Click HERE to tell your Lawmakers to  step up and support a budget that restores $410 million in new state funding for schools and adopts the formula recommended by the Basic Education Funding Commission. They must also support a reasonable revenue package to ensure we have the funding to do it and that we aren’t short changing kids because lawmakers are too afraid to cast tough votes.
