ACTION REQUESTED
The National Network for Youth urges its members and supporters to contact their two U.S. Senators IMMEDIATELY and urge them to vote in support of H.R. 4213, the American Jobs and Closing Tax Loopholes Act of 2010.  This comprehensive bill includes funds for Summer Youth Employment, the National Housing Trust Fund, and other human needs programs. Voting could start as early as Wednesday, June 16, and the vote is expected to be very close. Please call each of your Senators NOW and urge them to support this bill!
BACKGROUND
On May 28, the House passed H.R. 4213, the “tax extenders bill,” which included $1 billion in funding for Summer Youth Employment, $1 billion in initial funding for the National Housing Trust Fund, and funding for other human needs priorities. Votes on the bill in the Senate were anticipated in early June, but stalled while Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) searched for consensus on some aspects of the bill.
INSTRUCTIONS
Please call the Congressional switchboard toll-free at 877-210-5351 and ask for each of your Senators’ offices in turn. Relay the following message:
I am calling to urge the Senator to vote in support of H.R. 4213, the tax extender bill.  Please let the Senator know that I am especially interested in the Summer Youth Employment and National Housing Trust Fund provisions of the legislation.  I will be watching how the Senator votes on the American Jobs bill. Thank you for letting the Senator know my position on this legislation.

Our members are community-based organizations along with their neighborhood youth, adults, associations, and regional and state networks of youth workers.  These builders of the future provide street-based services, emergency shelter, transitional living programs, counseling, and social, health, educational and job-related services to over 2.5 million youth each year.
The National Network is committed to ensuring that opportunities for growth and development be available to our neighbors everywhere.  The youth we work with face greater odds due to abuse and neglect, homelessness, lack of resources, community prejudice, differing abilities, and other life challenges.
