Dear Rep Sanpei,

I urge you to support H.B. 140 “Tax Credit for Employing a Homeless Person" 

I believe this bill has been reworked and improved.  It’s good for business and it’s good for people.

My first real job was a CETA job.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comprehensive_Employment_and_Training_Act

I will forever be grateful to the helping hand I received through this govt program.  A job means everything.  This is particularly true if you’re looking to break out of poverty, or if you’ve lost your self esteem due to an unexpected job loss and now you can’t find another job.  I believe people that benefit from job programs appreciate it so much they continue to repay their community in small but countless ways.  I think we should support businesses that help our communities by hiring the homeless.  This is a good bill.

Sincerely,
-Kelly Marinan
