Advocacy Update: Updated Budget - Call to Action

March 18, 2021

Now that the Senate and Assembly have both introduced their counter proposals to the Executive budget proposal, final negotiations for the 2021-22 budget have begun. NYSSBA Governmental Relations has updated our state budget "Take Action" letter to reflect our final priorities, considering the three proposals that are now being actively discussed. We invite you, as school board members, as well as other members of your community, to submit the updated Take Action letter to your state legislators during these next few weeks of intense budget negotiations. Please note that you may submit this updated letter to your representatives even if you have sent a previous iteration of this year's state budget Take Action.
