Thank you for the calls you have made this legislative session to ensure the Homes for All agenda made it into conference committees! We would not have gotten to this place without your advocacy.
As legislative session moves forward, we gear up for our bills to go through conference committee. The senate and house will vote on the proposed budgets, and lastly, it will be sent to the Governor’s office. The Governor will approve or veto the proposal. Here’s where we need your help!
We need 100+ calls, emails, letters and/or personal meetings to current leadership to make it easy for them to say yes to Homes for All!
