Let your NC state legislator know if you oppose PARTF funds cuts (Not to get all Leslie Knope on you, but ... )

Fuquay-Varina Community Center, made possible by PARTF funds.
From the email inbox:


Yesterday SB 462 was filed in the senate and its companion bill, HB 574 will be filed in the house on Monday. The language in both these bills is identical and calls for 50% of the current land transfer tax be deposited to the NC Housing Trust Fund, while 37% would go to PARTF and 13% to the Natural Heritage Trust Fund. This compares to the current legislation which allocates 75% to PARTF and 25% to the Natural Heritage Trust Fund.


If you participate in FVAA activities, use and appreciate the community center, you may want to consider contacting your legislator to let them know your opposition to the new bills.

Senate: Richard.Stevens@ncleg.net (919) 733-5653
House: Paul.Stam@ncleg.net (919) 733-2962
It is imperative that these calls and emails be made either today or tomorrow, but no later than Monday, in order for legislators to know that PARTF is both needed and successful in its current form.
