LETTER: Full funding sought for Payment in Lieu of Taxes, Secure Rural Schools programs

Western Governors on March 16, 2017, sent letters to House and Senate Appropriations leadership requesting their "active support and full funding" of the Payment in Lieu of Taxes and Secure Rural Schools and Community Self Determination Act programs for the remainder of Fiscal Year 2017 and throughout Fiscal Year 2018. Western Governors have long advocated that the federal government must fulfill its obligation to fund these programs for rural counties that rely on them to provide necessary government services to their citizens. Read, download the Letter
