As you may know, the Federal Stimulus package is at a crucial juncture — the versions from the House and Senate diverge significantly, particularly over funding for education and aid to states. The differences are being resolved in the next few hours and days.

Stand for Children is asking school supporters across Massachusetts to email their House representatives, and President Obama, to ask that the joint Conference Committee keep these three things in the Stimulus package:

  • provisions on education incentives and innovation
  • the state fiscal stabilization program
  • the school construction program.

If you agree that our regional school district and our towns of Hamilton and Wenham could use some stimulus dollars right about now, please click here (www.stand.org/fedstimulusalert) and follow the instructions. It only takes 90 seconds of your time.

Thanks for caring.
