Next week the Finance Conference Committee comprised of House and Senate Legislators will meet to decide the fate of the MnSCU supplemental budget. Currently, the House version has the FY 2016-17 funding provided, which is needed for our settlements, while the Senate version does not. These meetings are extremely critical for our efforts!
Once the Conference Committee adjourns there will be no more negotiations over the MnSCU budget and we will have no further opportunities to lobby for additional funding. This could very well be the last time we will call on you to act.
Please use the action button to send a message to MnSCU budget Conference Committee members. You may edit and personalize the form letter. In fact, we encourage you to do so. You must keep your message cordial. We need the support of the Conferees if we are to protect our funding.
You do not have to provide a salutation on your message as one is already provided. “Dear Senator.” You do not have to sign off as your message will end with “Sincerely.” The information you fill out on the form will post to your message as sender when it is received.
Share this message with as many ASF members as possible! This message is critical for our collaboration and lobbying efforts.
