This year, the state’s hottest Intercollegiate battle takes place in the General Assembly.

` . We say we can’t afford not to, if we want good jobs for our children and
a higher standard of living for all of us.
. I If you agree, we need to hear from you. I I
Because the clock is running out. And to us, this is no game. ·
