Contact Your NYS Legislators & Ask for the #bFair2DirectCare Living Wage Spin Up

The Legislative Conferences (Senate Republican, Democratic and Independent Democratic Conferences and Assembly Democratic and Republican Conferences) met yesterday and will meet Tuesday & Wednesday (March 6th & 7th) to determine their respective Budget priorities to be passed the week of March 12th, which sets their negotiating positions as they meet with the Governor to enact a Budget for the next fiscal year.

It is essential you CALL your Senate & Assembly Members and SAY:

  • Please stand up for DSPs and people with developmental disabilities by urging your Conference to include the spin up of #bFair2DirectCare Living Wage funding in your one-house budget resolution.
  • It’s an additional $18.25M beginning Jan. 1, 2019, or just 0.01 percent of the total budget.
  • You can also follow-up your call with a LETTER to your Senate & Assembly Member.
