Take Action! Tell your senators how you feel on their vote to fund teachers and first responders.
Last week the Teachers and First Responders Back to Work Act (S. 1723) failed a vote on cloture by a vote of 50-50. Under the rules of the Senate, 60 votes were needed to continue toward action on the bill. All 47 Republicans voted against allowing the bill to proceed to a full debate joined by Democrats Sen. Ben Nelson (NE), Sen. Mark Pryor (AR), and independent Joseph Lieberman (CT).
