Please contact your Senator to express your opinion about this credit’s elimination. Seniors applying for the Circuit Breaker are low income. These dollars are not going into savings accounts–these dollars are going to pay past due bills, to pay for medications, to pay for food, and for other necessities.

Please contact our office if you receive any feedback on this important issue.
