A Note from State Rep. Mark Batinick:
Since July of last year, I have called for legislative pay to be halted until a compromised budget is passed. I co-sponsored House Bill 4253, brought by Rep. David McSweeney, which halts legislative pay in times of no budget. I believe if we had done this ten months ago, there would’ve been a well-compromised budget by now.
If universities, students, and social providers aren’t being paid, neither should legislators, and I ask that you sign the petition with your support on this belief. Thank you.
