Now is the time for a balanced approach to the budget shortfall

Tax bills are now being negotiated at the Capitol. We know that adequate funding for critical services is at stake unless policymakers pass a balanced approach to addressing the current budget shortfall. Now is the time when we must unite around raising revenues fairly so that legislators know where we stand.

That is why the Minnesota Budget Project has been working closely with Invest in Minnesota, a group uniting nonprofit, faith and labor organizations around the principles of raising revenue fairly. Legislators need to know that their constituents support a balanced approach that includes increasing revenues fairly.

Tuesday (April 21st) is an important day to take action. We need your involvement with a Capitol Call-In Day so that our voices are heard loudly and in unison. Just make two easy phone calls to your own elected state legislators with the message that you support raising revenue fairly as part of a balanced budget solution. For more information, go to the Invest in Minnesota website.
