Dear MSCA Faculty and Librarians:
The House Committee on Ways & Means
is considering a deficiency budget bill for FY 2005 to pay leftover expenses
from last year. Action is expected during the week of September 19th. The contract
funding request for the APA contract may be included in this bill, and we want
the MSCA contract funding bill to be included as well. In order for this to
happen, the governor must sign the MSCA contract funding request and send it
to the legislature, soon.
MSCA leadership has been in direct
contact with members of the Board of Higher Education, college presidents and
stae college trustees to ask them to contact the governor's office and the Executive
Office of Administration & Finance (Eric Kriss). We are requesting them
to urge the governor to file the MSCA contract funding fill as soon as possible.
We will keep you informed about our
progress. Thank you for your support and patience.
Patricia V. Markunas, MSCA President
