Take action TODAY: Ask Legislators to co-sponsor Legislative Agenda
Update: Deadline has been extended to Tuesday, February 3 due to the weather.
The Providers' Council continues progress towards a diverse, educated and supported human services sector. In collaboration with the Council's statewide provider membership, Public Policy Committee and Board of Directors, the Council has filed a Pro-Workforce Legislative Agenda for the 2015-2016 Legislative Session.
This agenda focuses on four bills: access to the Group Insurance Commission (GIC), repayment of loans for human service workers, tuition remission for graduate education courses and strengthening our sector's social enterprises.
Filing bills is just the first step to enacting laws that will strengthen the sector. Though we have sponsorship from our legislative champions, we need to show those on Beacon Hill that the human services sector has the support of the entire Legislature by securing co-sponsors.
That is where you come in. Please take five minutes today to send an email to your state legislators and ask them to co-sponsor our Pro-Workforce Legislative Agenda.
The deadline for securing co-sponsors is TODAY, February 2, and the human services sector must take action now to show our influence.
