The legislative money committees will hold their regional budget hearings in five locations on January 3, 2014. This is an opportunity for citizens to have their voices heard by some of the most powerful members of the General Assembly. The Campaign for Children’s Mental Health will once again be seeking to have a presence at all five hearings, and we need your help! Details of the hearings are below. If you would like to speak at one of the hearings, please contact us at margaret@vakids.org. We will provide talking points and more logistical information closer to the time. Thank you!
