With a vote of 79 to 19, the Senate passed the Edward M. Kennedy Serve America Act. The measure passed after senators adopted a substitute amendment that incorporated the text of the Senate version of the bill (S. 277). Thanks to your help, the final bill did not include any harmful language that would prohibit nonprofits from engaging in lobbying and other forms of advocacy.
Just from OMB Watch's alert, more than 5,800 e-mails were sent to senators and the White House. We made a real difference and got our message through.
