URGENT ALERT on Rep. DiGirolamo’s Amendment
URGENT ALERT on Rep. DiGirolamo’s Amendment Establishng a True Pilot Program for a Human Services Block Grant Program
June 29th, 2012
All efforts to reach a compromise with the Corbett Administration on a Human Services Block Grant Pilot Program have failed. The Senate Appropriations Committee has amended the Administration’s language into H.B. 1261, which we expect will be voted on the Senate floor later today, and sent to the House for concurrence, probably tomorrow.
Please immediately contact your state representative and urge him or her to support Rep. Gene DiGirolamo’s amendment to H.B. 1261 (the Public Welfare Code amendments) when it comes up for a vote in the House. Rep. DiGirolamo’s amendment will replace the Administration’s “pilot program” with a more reasonable framework for a REAL pilot of a Human Services Block Grant Program.
The message is simple: Support Rep. Gene DiGirolamo’s amendment to H.B. 1261.
