Yesterday the US Senate passed its version of an $838 billion stimulus bill, entitled the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, with a 61 to 37 vote. The legislation included the Coburn Amendment, which eliminated a $50 millionprovision for the National Endowment for the Arts that was included in the House of Representatives’ bill. The amendment, voted on last week, passed 73 to 24.

The Senate legislation, as Eddy Ramírez reports for US News and World Report, “is stripped of, among other funds, $16 billion for school construction and $40 billion more for states to fund schools.”

The Washington Post lists how senators voted on the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. CAA encourages you to show your approval or disapproval to your congressional representatives, using Americans for the Arts’ Capwiz feature to send a customized letter.
