The word’s gotten out that Lily Ledbetter, for whom the Lily Ledbetter Fair Pay Act of 2009 is named for, is heading up to the Nation’s Capital from Jacksonville, AL to be present when the President signs it into law tomorrow morning. The White House seems to have been looking forward to this event themselves, as evidenced in one of their first blog posts going so far as to provide a link to the measure as it was presented to and passed by boh the House and Senate via THOMAS. Today’s Birmingham News shares the story of where she’s come from and how she got ready for her trip into Washington today.
