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
  • 7. 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
  • 8. 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
  • 9. 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
  • 10.
    • 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:
  • 11.
    • 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
  • 12.
    • 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
  • 13.
    • 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
  • 14.
    • 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
  • 15.
    • 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
  • 16.
    • 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
  • 17.
    • 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:
  • 18.
    • 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:
  • 19.
    • Will have one-pager with clear, concise message
    • More important they communicate importance of programs
    • Will have mission one-pagers with impacts
    Budget Briefing
  • 20.
    • 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
  • 21.
    • 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
  • 22.
