ARRA Supplement 2009/2010 Total Authorized 2009/2010 including ARRA Ag Research $1,536,000 $25,594,000 Ag Extension $1,823,000 $30,384,000 Base Funding 2003/2004 2004/2005 2005/2006 2006/2007 2007/2008 2008/2009 2009/2010 Ag Research $22,922,000 $23,094,000 $23,094,000 $25,094,000 $25,595,000 $24,058,000 $24,058,000 Ag Extension $27,580,000 $27,787,000 $27,787,000 $29,787,000 $30,384,000 $28,561,000 $28,561,000
    • State Funding History – Base Funding Permanent 6% reduction in base funding moving forward in 2011/2012 Base Funding 2003/2004 2004/2005 2005/2006 2006/2007 2007/2008 2008/2009 *Authorized 2009/2010 Ag Research $22,922,000 $23,094,000 $23,094,000 $25,094,000 $25,595,000 $24,058,000 $24,058,000 Ag Extension $27,580,000 $27,787,000 $27,787,000 $29,787,000 $30,384,000 $28,561,000 $28,561,000
    • Cost Increases:
      • Must pay $1.345M this year for Benefit/Health Care Cost increases even though there was not a general salary increase
      • For every 1% increase in salaries it costs the college approximately $600,000
    • Note:
      • The actual Ag Research and Ag Extension lines in the Pennsylvania enacted budget contain zeros, as the entire appropriation, except for the Penn College line, is lumped into a new “General Support” line
      • In the appropriations bill the lines are absent altogether
      • We have assurances from Old Main that the lines will be distributed as historically proportioned
    • Other State lines of interest:
        • PDA research line started at $1 million, down from $1.64
          • Governor announced last week this line is reduced to zero
        • Animal Health Commission funding started flat at $5.15 million
          • Governor announced last week this line is reduced by $249,000
        • These additional cuts equate to college cut of around $250,000
      • Penn State is a world-class research institution that is not only an economic engine for the Commonwealth, but generates and distributes science-based solutions for businesses and agencies that help them remain competitive and create jobs 
      • College plays a unique role in serving Pennsylvania agriculture as the sole land-grant institution in the state
      Budget Talking Points:
      • 150 year old partnership between the federal government, state government, county government, and Penn State
      • The Agricultural Research and Agricultural Extension line items in the Penn State appropriations bill constitute Pennsylvania’s commitment to this partnership
      • These appropriated dollars are the foundation to maintain research and extension services provided to the Commonwealth in each of the 67 counties
      • • These state services are not funded through tuition dollars, are unique to Penn State, and should be treated as such
      • These funds are an investment in Pennsylvania that have a proven track record of paying huge dividends to the state
      • They are also used to leverage federal competitive grant funding, enhancing Pennsylvania’s economy and providing federal research funds to focus on Pennsylvania priorities
      • Agriculture is a major economic sector in Pennsylvania that has tremendous growth potential
      • 2007 Pennsylvania Census of Ag shows a 9% growth farm numbers and 36% growth in market value of production ($5.8 Billion) from 2002 survey (does not include forest products – additional $5.5 billion)
      • During economic crisis, small businesses - the bulk of agriculture in Pennsylvania - need help more than ever. State government needs to be investing in programs that help maintain and create jobs
      • Issue to be aware of :
      • Many state legislators mistakenly believe that Ag Research and Ag Extension appropriation lines are in the PDA budget, commonly referred to as the “Ag Budget”
      • These funding lines are in the Non-preferred Penn State Appropriation Bill
      • Sponsored by PSAC and PCCEA
      • Intended to be a visible show of support
      • Focused on constituents/advocates
      • Budget briefing to ensure a clear, consistent message
      • All legislators are visited
      • Communicate relevance in their district
      • Purpose is to make them care
      College Capitol Day: March 9, 2010 CEDs are asked to identify 3 advocates from their county to attend Capitol Day
      • Advocates will be assigned to groups by their legislative requests
      • CR office will schedule appointments - not advocates or CEDs
      • Every effort is made to match advocates to their own legislators
      • Not every advocate will get to see all of their requested legislators
      • Advocates from the same county may be placed in different groups
      • Advocates may be asked to visit other than the own legislators
      Key Points to communicate to advocates:
      • Size of group
      • Number of advocates attending from each district
      • Date of Registration
      • Legislator’s schedule
      • Number of visits possible in the day
      Limiting Factors in Setting up Appointments:
      • Will have one-pager with clear, concise message
      • More important they communicate importance of programs
      • Will have mission one-pagers with impacts
      Budget Briefing
      • Needs to be strategic
      • Welcome to attend the briefing and lunch
      • Will not participate in legislative visits
      • Possibly host ice cream social
      • Volunteer as scoopers at ice cream social
      Youth Participation
      • Budget Message Challenges for Capitol Day:
      • Do not have separate lines to lobby in bill
      • Penn State Budget will likely be flat due to ARRA funding for year three
      • State revenue shortfall
      • Will not have budget message until after the Governor presents his budget and budget hearings are over
