This week’s message rolled out later than usual yesterday, but the topic is next steps after the passage of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act aka stimulus bill. BTW the National Endowment for the Arts managed to keep their $50 million in the package. A victory for working people like carpenters, electricians, performers, teachers, artisans, crafts people, administrators in the arts. BTW, then Senator Barack Obama was a co-sponsor of DC House Voting Rights Act. More on that coming up.
