NDD United has extended the deadline for the February sign-on letter to February 10th to allow for more groups to join in the fight to protect nondefense discretionary investments. While there is no shortage of threats to the programs we all care about, the number of threats to funding for those same programs continue to grow in this new environment. This can be seen in the President’s choice of Rep. Mick Mulvaney, a strong proponent of cuts, to head the Office of Management and Budget and in the President’s “Penny Plan” that would further deteriorate the NDD budget. In addition, the President’s request for increased budgets for defense begs the question of where they will cut to offset those increases.
They invite all national, state, and local organizations to join the list of attached organizations in signing this letter urging Congress to protect NDD programs from further cuts and to end sequestration. To sign, click here and complete the form.
