Legislative Action Committee
The role of the North Babylon Union Free School District Legislative Action Committee is to monitor legislation that impacts the quality of education for our students and to vigorously pursue increases in Federal and State Aid in order to maintain the highest standard of excellence for public education.
Dear North Babylon Community,
The North Babylon UFSD recently created a Legislative Action Committee charged with developing legislative objectives and communicating these objectives to local, state and federal legislators.
The North Babylon Legislative Action Committee has set up a user friendly website to disseminate information about legislative concerns and how they affect all of us as a community.
The next meeting of the Legislative Action Committee is in the High School Board Room :
Monday, November 14, 2011

The New York State Legislature and Governor Paterson have recently been engaged in talks aimed to close the state’s budget deficit. For now, it appears as if there will be no midyear reduction in state aid for the current school year. However, there is mention of a delay in state aid payments to school districts or even a withholding of a portion of state aid payments. School districts will have to borrow money and incur the cost of interest on such loans in order to maintain the necessary cash flow if state aid payments are delayed. The situation is still fluid and has the potential to be disruptive to our children's education. The Legislative Action Committee has drafted a letter that community residents can email to our legislators to bring our concerns to their attention. We ask that you take a few moments to read this letter and email it to our state legislators.
To make it easier for you, simply click on the link below any of the legislators below and you will be directed to a form. You simply provide your name and your email address and click the 'Send Email' button.. The letter will be personalized to the recipients and sent from you.
Some of the recipients do not have direct email addresses, in this case, you will be taken to a form that allows you to print out a letter with the address of the recipient which you can mail.
Make your voice heard on these issues. Take action.
The Legislative Action Committee
