One More Time…

Posted by Zach Maurin on March 30, 2009

As I have posted before, the House needs to vote on the Serve America Act one more time.  And that time is now!  The House has brought the Serve America Act up to the floor on the Suspension Calendar.  This means that no amendments can be made, but it must receive a 2/3 super majority.  The House originally voted 321-105 carrying the super majority necessary for this time around.  If the bill is put through today, the legislation will be on President Obama’s desk by tonight!

We can do this, but we need your help!  

How can you help?

   * Since increased spending levels in the Senate bill may cause concerns for some House members, we ask that you contact your Representatives and urge them to support the bill.
    * The message is simple: “Please pass the GIVE Act as amended by the Senate.”
    * The House operator — 202-225-3121 — can connect you with your Congressperson. Click here to find out who represents your district.
    * Every phone call counts and every vote matters.

You can see how your representative voted in the first vote HERE.

Thank you again for all of your support and effort for national service.  Your efforts will all be justified when President Barack Obama signs the Serve America Act into law.
