Please help again…Senate to vote on bill to preserve jobs at Internet Archive

Friends of Internet Archive,

I’m back to ask your help again in getting S. 4213 passed this week to preserve and create jobs at the Archive. The bill would extend the JobsNow program. The House passed there version of it last week and this week, maybe today, the Senate will vote to determine if it will become law.

The Jobs Now program has been a game changer not only for us, but also for the 125 IA staff we have hired with these dollars. We all want this program to continue to be funded for 2010/2011. Passage of bill S 4213 will also help the unemployed and underemployed in all 50 states.

Please check out this link –

Please call the Senators in the state where you live, you were born in, the Senators in the state you used to live in and pass this link across the Nation. Tweet it, blog it, email it.

Our goal is to get 10,000 calls in 100 hours to 50 Senators. Passage of the bill happened in the House two weeks ago. Passage is not assured in the Senate. The Senate returns to Washington Tuesday, June 8th.

Let’s rise to this challenge and make Archive history and help our fellow citizens.

Please call as soon as you can to express support for passage of Senate bill S. 4213.

Thank you.

-Jeff Kaplan and all the staff at Internet Archive
