From our friends at NDD United:
NDD United Sign-On Letter To Congress
Sign Here To Ask Congress To Protect NDD Programs from Further Cuts and to End Sequestration.
Deadline: Friday, February 15th
Please note: This sign-on is for organizations only – please no individual sign-ons.
NDD United has been successful in securing partial and temporary sequestration relief for discretionary programs in fiscal years 2014-2019. Now sequestration is upon us again as the temporary and partial relief of the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2018 expires at the end of FY 2019. In the 116th Congress, our unity will be more important than ever as threats to non-defense discretionary programs face a steep, $55 billion funding cliff that would reverse many of the funding gains we’ve made.
Our best chance to prevent further cuts and increased funding for these programs is to speak with one voice.
We encourage all national, state, and local organizations to sign on to this letter urging Congress to protect NDD programs from further cuts and to end sequestration.
The letter is available here.
For this letter, we will be collecting only signatures from organizations. Please, NO INDIVIDUALS. If you are an individual that would like to participate in our campaign, please contact Benjamin Corb at [email protected] for information about our grassroots activities.
