Hill Report: Economic Stimulus

The Economic Recovery bill was scheduled for a Senate vote last night.  The vote never came. Around 9:00pm Senator Harry Reid halted the procedures because he believed he did not have the votes to move the bill.
The situation is this, states are stuck waiting to see what exactly they will receive from the economic stimulus package.  While states are waiting, governors and elected leaders are preparing emergency plans to keep their budgets balanced for this fiscal year.

It is not to late to get the bill through the Senate. We are hearing that the vote may happen today. So, take a moment this Friday morning and tell Senator Burr and Senator Hagan to support the bill. (Look below for yesterday's Action Alert)
