We need members to call their state representatives TODAY (and no later than Friday, April 25) and urge them to support Amendment 648 to restore funding for key DCR programs.
The current House FY2015 budget proposes cutting DCR Operations by $1.7 million compared to FY2014. The proposed funding levels do not adequately cover many critical DCR programs, hurting both the people who use our parks and natural resources year-round and our members who work for DCR. These budget cuts to DCR have already led to closed or poorly maintained facilities, and a declining quality of experience for visitors.
Please call the State House today at (617) 722-2000 and ask to speak with your state representative. Your call in support of Amendment 648 will make a difference.
