FRIENDS — WE ARE DOWN BUT NOT OUT. The Republican Senate proposed their alternative to the Governor’s budget yesterday. As we have feared, the Tennessee Real Estate Transfer Funds were STRIPPED of approximately $16 million and the money diverted to the General Fund.
This is NOT why the Funds were established, and it’s WRONG to set aside money for one purpose and then use it for something else!
CALL LT. GOVERNOR RON RAMSEY AND OTHER MEMBERS OF THE SENATE AND HOUSE FINANCE COMMITTEES TODAY! TELL THEM THAT TENNESSEE IS IMPORTANT. TELL THEM YOU WANT A “FOREVER GREEN TENNESSEE”!!
We might have lost a battle yesterday but the war is not over. We can still save these funds, so PLEASE call your Representatives (see our “Senate and Reps” page for a list of who we’re targeting). and tell them you want a FOREVER GREEN TENNESSEE!
