Governor McDonnell has asked state agencies to propose 2%, 4%, and 6% budget cut scenarios of their general-fund appropriations for FY 2012-2014. All three of VA Department of Environmental Quality’s (DEQ) budget cut scenarios completely cut citizen monitoring grant funding, which provides about $176000 in general fund savings.
If you would like an opportunity to weigh in on these proposals to cut important funding for our citizen monitoring groups, there are a few hearings in January. Check out the 2012 Public Hearings Press Release for more information.
We will also post more information on this website about contacting key legislators.
