SAVE THE COUNCIL ON ENVIRONMENTAL QUALITY AND THE COMMUNITY INVESTMENT ACT FROM BEING ELIMINATED IN THE STATE BUDGET!
The Connecticut General Assembly will soon be back in a special session with a goal of completing a state budget plan by June 30. It is urgent that you contact leadership to say NO to the elimination of the CEQ and the CIA.
The Governor’s original budget proposed ZERO funding for the Council on Environmental Quality. Proposals from both sides of the aisle have also included cuts to the CIA during the next biennium. Most recently, the Senate Republican’s plan proposed a diversion of 100% of the CIA funds for the next two fiscal years.

​Even if you submitted testimony earlier this year, WE NEED YOUR HELP AGAIN! The fate of CEQ and the CIA ​now rests with Governor Malloy, and House and Senate legislative leaders.

ACTION: Contact the following leaders and remind them that these programs are vital assets to protecting our states’ land, air, water and wildlife. Ask them to restore funding for CEQ and CIA.
Also, please cc your own legislators. THEY WILL PAY ATTENTION TO MESSAGES FROM A CONSTITUENT.

Thanks to the CT Land Conservation Council for the information needed to take this urgent action.
**************
Quick copy and paste letter:

I’m writing to urge you to say NO to the elimination of the CEQ and the CIA.

The Governor’s original budget proposed ZERO funding for the Council on Environmental Quality. Proposals from both sides of the aisle have also included cuts to the CIA during the next biennium. Most recently, the Senate Republican’s plan proposed a diversion of 100% of the CIA funds for the next two fiscal years.

We cannot afford to eliminate funds that protect our environment! These programs are vital assets to protecting our states’ land, air, water and wildlife. Please restore funding for CEQ and CIA!

Thank you for doing your part to preserve our beautiful state!

Sincerely,

Your name
