Rallies in Five Cities Planned on Friday the 13th to Protect CA Families From the Bad Budget Deal and Permanent, Deep Cuts to Homecare, Education, and Other Vital Services
Date:2/11/2009

SACRAMENTO, Calif., Feb. 11 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- As the Governor and legislators announced a budget deal that includes temporary revenues in exchange for deep cuts and a budget cap that makes them permanent, SEIU members and community allies from around the state plan to rally in front of the Capitol Building in Sacramento and the Governor's offices in Los Angeles, Riverside, Fresno and San Diego on Thursday and Friday of this week.

The rallies are an effort to stop the bad budget deal. Cooked up in secret, the proposed budget includes massive cuts that will be felt by virtually every Californian, from school children and their teachers, to the elderly, disabled, and the people who care for them.

At the same time, at the federal level, the Senate and House are negotiating a final deal on the economic recovery that could strip important funding from the House version and reduce the amount of aid coming to struggling California families.

Workers and community allies plan on sending a clear message to the legislature, the Governor, and California's Congressional delegation that these are extraordinary times and that leaders in Washington, DC and Sacramento must stop the bad budget deal in California and restore full aid to states in the economic stimulus package. Workers and community members will address the effects of the proposed cuts and the proposed budget cap.
