Action Alert

Urge Governor to Veto Revenue Sharing Cuts

House and Senate Pass Cuts, Veto Needed to Protect Revenue Sharing

Call the Governor: (517) 373-3400
The House and Senate passed the general government budget which drastically cuts revenue sharing.  Click here for your legislators' votes.

Please call Gov. Jennifer Granholm now and urge her to veto revenue sharing cuts approved by the Legislature that will jeopardize public safety and devastate other essential services in every Michigan community.

Talking Points:

  • Revenue sharing cuts passed by the Legislature will force more police and firefighter layoffs.

  • Cuts will push some communities already in precarious financial shape toward insolvency, and threaten basic local services like water and sewer systems, parks, and roads and bridges.

  • Cuts will jeopardize public safety for Michigan residents in local communities and neighborhoods.

  • The cuts of the past eight years have already caused the layoffs of more than 2,400 firefighters and nearly 2,000 police officers across the state.

After you call, click here to email the governor through our Action Center (add your own text or use ours then click "send" – we'll take care of the rest).
