Letter to the House of Representatives in support of reauthorization/funding of forest county and schools program
January 26, 2007
On behalf of the National Education Association's (NEA) 3.2 million members, we urge you to add your name as a cosponsor of the Secure Rural Schools and Community Self-Determination Reauthorization Act (H.R. 17), introduced by Representatives DeFazio (D-OR) and Walden (R-OR). We also urge your support for inclusion of language reauthorizing and fully funding this critical program in the emergency supplemental bill.
Given the urgent need for continuation of this program, we urge you to support legislation (H.R. 17) to reauthorize and fund it and to push for inclusion of such language in the emergency supplemental bill. To add your name as a cosponsor, please contact Penny Dodge in Congressman DeFazio's office (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Colby Marshall in Congressman Walden's office (email@example.com).
We thank you for your attention to this important issue.
Diane Shust, Director of Government Relations
