One path for balancing the state’s 2014-15 budget would cut the Keystone Recreation, Park and Conservation Fund, farmland preservation and Growing Greener.
We must keep Senators and Representatives from going down this path as the state’s June 30 deadline for enacting a new budget approaches.
To sign on, please send the organization name, a contact person (with email), and their title/position to Rebecca Heath at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Correction: An email of 6/11/2014 issued by PALTA with subject “Urgent Action Needed – Sign-on Letter” stated that the Governor had suggested the conservation cuts to the House and Senate Republican Caucuses; this statement was based on reports from legislative offices. Upon further investigation, PALTA learned that this characterization is incorrect. What had happened is that the Administration laid out a number of scenarios on how one might achieve a balanced budget given current revenues and no new revenue; this did not involve any endorsement or suggestion that any such scenario should be enacted. PALTA strives for accuracy and fairness in its communications and regrets the misleading characterization.
