Community Legal Services challenged the constitutionality of Act 80 and, recently, in a 7-0 decision, the Supreme Court agreed that in rushing to passing the law the General Assembly violated the procedural requirements of the state Constitution. The state will have to restore the General Assistance program although we do not know how long it will take for the state to adjust its systems to do so.
At a time when we are all fighting so hard to protect the social safety net, this is a major victory. We are writing to ask your organization to join us in a sign-on letter both celebrating this Supreme Court decision and reaffirming our support of the General Assistance program.
Please fill out the information below to sign your organization on to the letter.
