Teachers and First Responders Back to Work Act of 2011 - Vote Rejected (50-50)
Last week the Senate rejected consideration of this bill that would allocate $30 billion in grants to state and local governments to pay to hire or retain teachers and $5 billion in grants to governments and other groups to pay for law enforcement officers and emergency personnel. This was one component of the president’s broader jobs bill that was rejected earlier in the month.

The first step in making our government work is to make your representatives work for you. Keep in touch with them by visiting their web site, look at the legislation they are currently involved with and most definitely write to them and give a follow-up call. The more of us that participate the better it is for all!
