Help Pass the Economic Stimulus Package!
December 13, 2001
At this moment, negotiations over an economic stimulus package have stalled in the United States Senate. The House of Representatives passed their version of a stimulus package several weeks ago, but the Senate has not been able to agree to a specific package.
There are several provisions being discussed as part of the final package that are of interest to the restaurant industry:
1. Accelerated phase-in of rate cuts - enacted earlier this year
The Senate must move quickly in order to get the package to the President before Congress adjourns for the year.
HOW YOU CAN HELP
1. Call your Senators. The Capitol Switchboard is (202) 224-3121. Ask your Senators to "Tell Senate Majority Leader Daschle to address the economic stimulus package before Congress adjourns."
2. Spread the word. Forward this alert to your managers, employees, friends and family.
