Did everyone get the latest PPMD advocacy update Ryan? We need to act on this now.
Ryan's e-mail showed 100 sign on's from the House side. Twelve of the sign on's are from California. Check Ryan's e-mail to see if you’re Representative has signed on. You can also go to the Thomas library to check for signatures and updates yourself. If is not always updated immediately. My understanding a staffer will take the information to the proper place so it is recorded and it may post a couple of days or so after the office has said they would sign on.
You can see the status of a bill by going to the link below:
The bill for the House members is H.R.5265
If your member has not signed on, give them a call to request their support.
If you want more information on how to feel comfortable about this whole process post your questions here. We can all help one another get familiar with the process so we gain more support on this very important bill. Ryan is another great source of support. PPMD is working with Cornerstone, a lobbyist group. They will also help you. You can go to the Advocacy section for details about them.
Our California Senators are supporting the MD Care Re-authorization Act.
We still have more to do in CA to gain support for this bill. We can do this as a community!
Rep Anna Eschoo is on the Energy and Commerce community and has not signed on. Her office is one that California parents visited in February to ask for support. Last time I called the office they had a change over in staff personnel and there was going to be a new Legislative Health Aid. It has been a while since I called this office.
Please take a look at make sure that your representative has signed on to the Re-Authorization Bill, H.R.5265. If your representative has signed send them a thank you for their support. If you have not seen their name on Thomas library link then call to get support.
As a community we can make a difference, stand united and gain support for our children! We are making a difference!!
All the best!
