Together NC's Letter to Governor Perdue

Bookmark and Share 

Last week, The National MS Society joined with more than 120+ members  of Together NC to submit a letter to Governor Perdue urging her to “choose a path to the future” in light of a 3.7 million dollar shortfall in the state budget.  Together NC “is a broad and diverse collection of non-profit organizations, service providers, and professional associations who have come together to promote wise choices for shared prosperity for all North Carolinians.”

The letter requests Governor Perdue to “take a balanced approach to our state’s fiscal crisis” by producing a budget that includes raising revenue as opposed to taking a cuts-only approach to the state budget. A cuts-only approach would potentially eliminate 15 percent or roughly $600 million from the budget of the Department of Health and Human Services alone, threatening the existence and continuation of several community health services and programs for children, the elderly, and persons with disabilities (Read our entry from December 6, 2010 ).
