Capitol Hill visit feedback & priorities

Enter Hill Visit Feedback: One person per Capitol Hill visit, should have provided feedback on each visit through this an online form by March 28.

During Capitol Hill visits on March 12, MS activists urged Congress to:

1. Support MS Treatments: Pipeline to Approval

2. Support the Ensuring Access to Quality Complex Rehabilitation Technology Act

3. Join the Congressional MS Caucus

Next Steps: Issue Updates and Thank Yous

Funding Letters: The following three "Dear Colleague" letters have been finalized and sent to the House and Senate Appropriations Committees. The only Dear Colleague remaining open and available for Senators to sign on to is for the MS CDMRP.

See if Your Members of Congress Have Supported Our Priorities: This spreadsheet lists all Representatives and Senators (on separate tabs) and indicates whether each is part of the MS Caucus, signed on to the NIH and CDMRP Dear Colleague letters and/or cosponsored the complex rehabilitation technology bill.

Say Thank You: If your Representative and/or Senators has joined the MS Caucus, signed on to any funding letters and/or became a cosponsor of the complex rehab bill, say thank you.
