TAKE ACTION TODAY!

On Wednesday, June 6, it will be down to a committee of just six legislators who will finalize recommended funding levels for this popular state program. The legislators will negotiate the differences between the Senate and House K-12, School Aid, Education budgets, including on funding and the geographic expansion of the 10 Cents program.

So reach out NOW to let the members of this Conference Committee know the importance of the program and that you support increasing its funding.

Here is where you come in - we need you to contact the representatives in bold by Wednesday afternoon to advocate on behalf of 10 Cents. 

Here are the members of the Conference Committee on SB 863, which is set to meet at approximately 3:15 p.m. Wednesday in the Senate Appropriations Committee Room in Lansing.

Rep. Tim Kelly                                                     Sen. Goeffrey Hansen
Rep. Shane Hernandez                                       Sen. David Hildenbrand
Rep. Robert Kosowski                                        Sen. Hoon-Yung Hopgood

As you know if you’ve been following this cutting edge program, 10 Cents provides match funding to grant-winning schools to purchase and serve locally grown produce. It sparks healthy lunch choices and a vibrant economy.
