Thank you GO supporters who contacted Senator Brown’s office and asked him to support funding for the Partnership for Sustainable Communities in the FY 2013 Federal Budget.  As a member of the Senate Appropriation Committee’s Senator Brown voted YES on the proposal to allocate $50 million to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s Sustainable Communities Initiative.  The Bill passed the Appropriations Committee and will soon to the Senate floor. We have sent a letter to Senator Brown thanking him for his committee to healthy, sustainable communities and encourage you to do the same.
