Rep Geoff Diehl has filed H 2481, which allows the tax-payer to re-direct the portion of his/her taxes which has been used to pay for abortions. That amount would be used to fund the implementation of the current Baby Safe Haven Law.
H 2481 does not cut the amount of taxes the state collects.
H 2481 does allow those who oppose abortion on moral grounds to be sure they are not paying for abortions
H 2481 does fund important educational efforts.
Hearings: Joint Revenue Committee, June 30th, 10:00 am, Room B1.
Please mark your calendar and begin thinking about your testimony. Sandra testified at the last hearings on the Women's Safety Bill. She did such a great job and realized how important testimony can be that she is working on a step-by-step guide for testimony ( given in person or in writing), which we will be posting on the MCFL website in a matter of hours (weather permitting) along with some lobbying guides that I am writing.
Senate Chair: Michael Rodriques, Michael.Rodrigues@masenate.gov
House Chair: Jay Kaufman, Jay.Kaufman@mahouse.gov
If you are not going to able to attend in person, please email your testimony to both chairs.
Your efforts make all the difference!
