Possible political connections:
Usually, a NGO must have the approval of the leges in whose districts the organization is located to be funded. The organization is in Rep. Patrick Williams and Sen. Greg Tarver’s districts. Check with the leges for more information.
One can only assume that the leges would not have appropriated the funds for the organization unless its needs were a higher priority than the state colleges and universities which had their funding reduced and student tuition was raised.
Anyone who thinks that funding the organization is not a higher priority than our state colleges and universities, please forward this to your leges for an explanation of their priorities because I can’t explain it.
