It is critical that Members hear from their own constituents! If you can?t do it, help to mobilize the advocacy effort in your state!
Make members of the House and Senate Appropriations Committees the highest priority. Contacting both the Member?s DC office and State / district office is recommended. Key points include:
- The Continuing Resolution amount of $68 Million is not adequate to sustain a national Weatherization Assistance Program;
- The negative effect on services, jobs, and other impacts in the Member?s state or district;
- The need for them to support a budget anomaly finding for WAP; and
- The need for the program to be funded at the Senate Appropriations Committee level of $190 Million for 2014.
