      Stimulus Update: Senate May Vote Today

Just when it appeared Congress was drawing near a conclusion to the 
negotiations, compromises, and final votes needed to send the economic 
stimulus on its way to the President’s desk, the matter became a bit 
more complicated and uncertain.

Current speculation is that the Senate will be forced to vote today on 
the $788 billion agreement because the House passed a resolution 
requiring a period of 48 hours before a vote so that members may read 
the bill.

At this point, we cannot say for sure what is in the legislation, as the 
final bill text has not been released. As we learn more about what is or 
isn’t in the bill in the coming days, ALA’s Washington Office will once 
again seek out your vital grassroots efforts when needed.

In the meantime, the best thing you can do is stay informed through 
keeping an eye on the news and on the District Dispatch, which we will 
continue to update as  this process continues.
