We need calls TODAY to your legislators to protect the EA and TAFDC lines. The governor vetoed important language that is needed to assure legislative oversight and time to advocate and organize against any regulation or eligibility changes. Right now, the September clothing allowance is at risk of being cut if this language is not restored. Please call today and simply say the following:
- I am calling to ask that your office votes to restore advanced notice protection language in the shelter and cash assistance lines. Please override the Governor’s vetoes in lines 7004-0101 and 4403-2000. These are no cost overrides which will assure legislative oversight.
To find your legislators at the State House, go to wheredoivitema.com and look for “Rep. In General Court” and “Senate in General Court”
