Action Alert! Key Senate Committee Schedules Markup for MD-CARE Act

Please take 1 minute to email your Senators!


Yesterday, a key Senate committee announced that it will consider the MD-CARE Act Amendments next Wednesday, July 23rd. This significant step forward, announced a day after the full Energy & Commerce Committee approved the bill, clearing its way for consideration by the full House, is a very encouraging signal from the Senate.


We need all members of the Senate to know how important advancing this bill is to our community. A few clicks could mean so much to educating Senate offices about the importance of the MD-CARE Act and how it impacts your family.


PPMD has been working closely with the HELP Committee and key staffers over the past several weeks and months to prepare for next week.


The MD-CARE Act Amendments have made significant progress over the past few weeks largely because of the activism of the Duchenne community. Let’s keep it up during this important time! Please take a moment to reach out to your Senators and share with your friends and family to do the same.
