Trump’s proposed budget completely defunds the West Coast’s earthquake warning system

After years of work, an earthquake early warning system for the west coast was scheduled to begin operating next year. The system would deliver an early warning of an earthquake or tsunami to every cell phone. Trump’s budget would defund it. Public safety is a nonpartisan issue, and stopping progress on the warning system would put millions of lives at risk.

Script:  I’m calling to ask (___) to fight to maintain funding for the west coast earthquake warning system that has been in development for many years.  Public safety is a nonpartisan issue.
