CUNY Encourages Letter Campaign to Legislature
Please visit www.supportcuny.org immediately, because Baruch College’s and the University’s State funding for the next fiscal year may be decided this week.
The New York State Legislature has passed differing one-house versions of the New York State Budget. The Senate and Assembly will form budget conference committees this week to establish targets for any additional funds that may be available.
• The Assembly provided $161 million in additional capital funds. CUNY seeks $1.2 billion in additional capital funds for our five-year plan. Both allocations are critically important to the renovation of the Field Building at 17 Lexington Avenue at Baruch College/CUNY.
• CUNY seeks $6 million more in state operating aid for students with disabilities, veteran students and increasing college work experience opportunities.
• Both houses restored child care funds to the level we sought.
• The Senate provided additional funds for contract courses and workforce development.
• The Assembly provided a moderate increase in SEEK and College Discovery Funds.
Please use the letters at www.supportcuny.org to contact legislators today, while the budget conference committee process is under way.
The conference committees are scheduled to finish work by this Friday, March 15. The Legislature is quickly moving toward the April 1, 2013, budget deadline. The time to communicate is now!
Please send the following letter to your representatives in the New York State Legislature: Budget Conference Committee Letter 2013-14
Thank you for your help and support.
