WANT TO SAVE LIBRARY FUNDING IN THE STATE BUDGET? IN LESS THAN THREE MINUTES YOU CAN “CLICK AND SEND” A LETTER TO A LEGISLATOR!
CLA has made it easy for grass roots advocates to send a quick email letter to some of the key decision-makers at the State Capitol. Library supporters need to convince legislators to include $15.2 million in funding for three critical programs in the State Budget – the California Library Services Act, the Library Literacy Services program, and the Public Library Foundation.
Some of you may already be sending letters on letterhead to the legislators highlighted in a May 15th report from our lobbyists – and that is great! But, if time is a factor for you, CLA has developed a special sample letter that you can send to four legislators by clicking on the contact links below! First, download the sample letter using the provided link below. Then, click one of the Legislator contact links below, copy and paste the sample letter into the body of the webform, fill out the remaining required personal contact information and send it off to the State Capitol with only a few clicks of your mouse. (Repeat the process for each legislator of course!) This will make reaching out to legislative leaders easy and effortless. Remember, time is of the essence – click and advocate today!

The Honorable Bob Blumenfield, Assembly Budget Committee Chair
The Honorable Mark Leno, Senate Budget Committee Chair

It has come to our attention that some of the Legislators email systems will not allow you to submit a message to them if you are not from their districts. We have included fax numbers below to each Legislator so you may print out and fax a copy of the personalized Sample Letter available on the CLA site to each.
