Description

This correspondence includes a letter sent to Congressman Moakley from a married couple in Jamaica Plain, as well as Moakley’s response. The couple express their dismay that a congressional bill intended to end forced busing is “tied up in committee” and ask Moakley what he has done to try to get the bill to pass. In his response, Moakley assures these two constituents that he has frequently testified in Congress against forced busing and will continue to do so.
