House Budget Provides Modest Support

Through the great efforts of clients, families, staff, advocates, CRSA members, and the CRSA Legislative Committee we were able to get a $0.30 increase to the benchmark for direct support staff wages in the House budget! NOW we need to work on the Senate to make sure it stays in the final budget. Please contact your Senator today and ask that she/he make sure this funding stays in the final budget! This work is imperative to keeping this funding in the final budget. Thank you. You can look your Senator up here:
