Moby read about the cuts in the New York Times and said he would donate the money from his three California concerts

As Moby writes, the bill restoring funding has passed and the governor has indicated he will sign it (see dist08.casen.govoffice.com for more info)

 

But it still would be helpful to contact him asking him to sign SB3x13 and to make sure there is long term funding for domestic violence prevention programs (this is just a temporary measure for this year)
