Bring Lead Poisoning Prevention Money BACK to Michigan!
As State legislators work to develop next year's budget for Michigan, advocates for children have been working furiously in Lansing to get funding restored for the Michigan Lead Safe Home Program... and it looks as if their hard work is paying off!
There is currently discussion happening in Lansing to re-instate funding for childhood lead poisoning prevention in the coming fiscal year. While the details are still being worked out, your letters and phone calls are needed NOW to help make this funding happen.
Click here for a fact sheet to help you with writing your letter or email. Your communication does not need to be anything fancy, it simply needs to state that funding for lead poisoning prevention needs to be re-instated in the DCH budget for next year, and it's helpful for you to give your personal reasons for why this is so important.
Please take five minutes today to pen a letter on behalf of yourself or your organization.
In the past ten years in Grand Rapids, we've come close to our goal of elimination. From 525 children poisoned in 2001 to just 68 in 2011, we're 87% of the way home. Write a letter today to help us make lead poisoning history in Grand Rapids!
Please address your letters to the Chairperson of the respective DCH Committees below. Please also send a copy of your letter to your local legislators (links to the left) and a copy to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Honorable John Moolenaar
