Watch Now: House Rules Committee Debating Stim Package

4:45 PM PST on January 27, 2009

For the C-SPAN junkies out there, watch the live discussion in the House about the merits of the Stimulus Plan.  As Streetsblog NYC reports, New York Rep Nadler and Oregon Rep. Peter DeFazio have delivered their testimony for
the Nadler amendment (PDF). Rules Chair Louise Slaughter and committee
members Matsui, McGovern, and Diaz-Balart responded very favorably.
They'll be hearing about a few more amendments before holding any vote.

Open Left is writing that the Nadler amendment will have the support of House leadership and will make it to the floor.  Let's be sure to call our representatives back to urge them to vote positively on the amendment when it's voted out of committee.

If you haven't called our Bay Area reps, the numbers are below.  Talking points here.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi - (202) 225-4965

Appropriations Committee Member Barbara Lee - (202) 225-2661

And as our friends at Transform remind us, we need to keep calling our Senators to be sure they take action as well:
Senator Boxer: (202) 224-3553,  followed by 1 to leave a comment
Senator Feinstein: (202) 224-3841   

Thank you to everyone who made calls so far and those who continue to push for transit!
