State Budget Hearing 2019

Make your voice heard at the Joint Committee on Finance public hearing regarding the Governor's 2019-21 Biennial Budget.

Wednesday, April 10 | 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM

The Joint Finance Committee is a select group of 16 State Senators and State Assembly representatives who review the Governor’s budget proposals, and who make recommendations to the rest of the legislature. As part of the process, they have public hearings around the state where anyone can have two minutes to offer their story, their insights, their requests and demands.

Feel free to pull language from the book to use for your personal letter. (Please include your name, address, and that you are affiliated with SOPHIA/WISDOM.)
