**Call to Action**
Misguided Cuts in the President's FY2015 Budget
As you may have heard by
now, the President's proposed budget for Fiscal Year 2015 included a sadly
familiar though still-misguided budget cut: the complete elimination of BOTH the
NIOSH Education and Research Centers AND the NIOSH Agricultural Forestry and
Fishing Program. In Colorado, this cut would eliminate the Mountain &
Plains Education and Research Center (MAP ERC), as well as the High Plains
Intermountain Center for Agricultural Health and Safety (HICAHS).
reaching out to our community partners in order to raise awareness about the
proposed cut. In the past, some of our partners have graciously sent letters
of support to their elected officials in the Senate and the House. Please
consider contacting your elected officials to educate them about this decision.
Contacting them electronically or by fax is the best way for your Senators and
your Congressperson to receive news and opinions from their constituents.

I have also included a
template letter which you are free to modify if you so choose.
Thank you for your continued
