URGENT! Action Needed:
Contact your Senator
JFA is a free service of the American Association of People with
Disabilities (AAPD<http://rs6.net/tn.jsp?et=1102446930578&e=001OHajd5qR7Ktn66XL6IzmoANrMRm5xVm5LfvDrjk33aXrjU0Gg3CbWQ5CIJ2wZpLFzLeyTdqECUdnay30x9XBICK_dVsLzIW85TV_Ehyp-7E=>

The stimulus bill passed by the House of Representatives contains $13
billion for IDEA, $500 million for Vocational Rehabilitation, and $110
million for Independent Living.  A version of that bill is being discussed
in the Senate as I type.


Cuts to the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, otherwise known as the
Economic Stimulus bill are being proposed by moderate Democrats and some
Republicans.  VR, Independent Living, and IDEA funding are among the items
being proposed for cuts!!


IMMEDIATELY CALL 202-224-3121 and ask for your Senators’ offices and leave
the message below:


“I urge you to keep funding for Vocational Rehabilitation, Independent
Living and IDEA in the Economic Stimulus bill.  People with disabilities
deserve the opportunity to benefit from the economic stimulus package.  With
EVERY STATE facing looming budget deficits, the funding for these programs
in the Economic Stimulus bill will offset any state budget cuts that would
hurt people with disabilities and also ensure that people with disabilities
are not left behind.”


MODERATOR, Sarah Peterson, JUSTICE FOR ALL — A Service of the American
Association of People with Disabilities (AAPD).
