The Serve America Act is through Congress

Posted by Zach Maurin on April 1, 2009

Yesterday in a roll call vote, the House of Representatives voted to amend the Serve America Act with the newer Senate version.  The vote was 275-149, fulfilling the super majority and bipartisan efforts.

   This only leaves one step to make this official, signing the bill into law.  While President Barack Obama is in Europe right now, there will be no reason for him to sign the Serve America Act as soon as he lands in the states.  

   After the Serve America Act is on the books of US Code, we still need your support.  We need to make sure that Congress fulfills their promises laid out in the bill.  Appropriations will occur to physically fund the bill, and this is definitely not the easiest process.  ServeNext will keep you updated with all of that.

   But for now…it is time to celebrate our success!  Thank you for your continued support and efforts.  Without you we could not have succeeded!
