CHAIRMAN

WASHINGTON, D . C. 20006
TO:
Chairmen and Executive Directors of Local
Urban Coalitions
FROM:
Lowell R. Beck, Executive Director
SUBJECT:
Senate Action on Public Service Employment
Last month we asked you to call or tel egram your
senators, u rg ing their support for the Clark-Javits -P routy
bill on Public Service Employment. Although we expected
it to be offered as an amendment to the Manpower Development
and Training Act extension, MDTA was not called up for a
vote and no action was taken.
It now appears th at MDTA will be b e fore the full
Senate late this week or early next week. Once again, we
call on you to let your senators know your fe e lings about
the need for public service employment. Please ask them
to support Senator Clark's ame ndme nt to the Manpowe r Deve lopme nt and Training Act Exte n s ion (S. 2938).
Several days ago we asked you to urge your senators
to support higher appropriations for education and poverty
programs, and your response was most gratifying. Thanks
to the combined efforts of many interested persons, the full
Senate rais e d the appropriations figures significantly.
We h ave another ch a nce in these ·clo s ing days of Congress to
b e h ea rd on one o f the mo st significant progra ms affecting
our cities and would appre ciate your assistance .
Enclosed for your inf o rmation is a factual memorandum
on the l atest version of the Clark-Javits-Prouty bill.
