Despite our successful effort to remove the funding from the Senate’s version of the budget, Rep. Kavanagh just hasn’t gotten the message.
He has indicated that he might try to restore the $900,000 handout to GEO Group that the Senate pulled from the budget.
The budget will now go to a Conference Committee. The members of the Conference Committee will be chosen by House Speaker Andy Tobin. We do not yet know when the committee will meet, but it could be as early as today (4/3/14), which is why we need you to act again.
Call House Speaker Andy Tobin and Senate President Andy Biggs and ask them to keep Kavanagh’s $1 million GEO Group giveaway OUT of the budget.
