Support a Disability-Friendly Stimulus

Posted Feb 10 2009 11:01am

As noted recently on this blog, the U.S. economic stimulus package may have a big impact on the disability community.

I have concentrated on special education funding, but it goes deeper than that.

ASAN has an action alert on the change.org website. You can fill out a message and it will be sent to your legislators.

From the website:

Today, the Senate will likely pass stimulus legislation that includes substantial cuts in special education, vocational rehabilitation and other disability-related spending provisions as compared to the House version. Afterwards, the Senate and House will reconcile the bills and come up with a consensus version. This action alert enables you to tell your legislators how important it is to keep disability spending provisions fully funded as in the House version.

Please (PLEASE) take a minute and send the message.
