Fellow Federationists,

As many of you have been hearing, California has significant budget issues. 
The State Legislature has been called into special session to discuss a 
series of budget cuts and new taxes the Governor has proposed. On the cuts 
side, the blind community has been threatened by cuts to programs such as 
SSI, Medi-Cal, and IHSS that will dramatically impact the lives of hundreds 
of thousands of blind Californians. Attached is a brief explanation of a few 
of the most dangerous cuts. We are calling upon you to reach out to your 
State Senator and Assemblyman immediately. Hearings to discuss these cuts 
will commence on Friday 11/14, and the Federation must act today. The 
information below is designed to provide you background knowledge of the
