There is hope for more school aid

Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver has introduced a bill to extend the income-tax on millionaires.

Here’s his statement:

Quite simply, this is a moral imperative,” Mr. Silver said in a statement. “We should not give a special handout to multimillionaires and billionaires while our children’s futures are in jeopardy.”

Even if you have done it already, call, write or fax your lawmaker today to tell them you agree, and you vote.
