    I was reading the Ct GroundsKeepers Assoc. newsletter today when I came across this:

    "Drought Relief Act:
    The US senate is considering a bill that would make government backed loans available to non farm small businesses that have been econimically distressed by the drought."

    It goes on to say there will be a vote by the full Senate expected shortly, along with passage.
