The Congressional MS Caucus is a bipartisan caucus comprised of dedicated members of the U.S. House of Representatives and U.S. Senate who raise awareness about MS on Capitol Hill. The National MS Society Public Policy Office and MS activists work with MS Caucus members to seek and advance creative federal policy solutions to the challenges facing people living with MS, family members and other caregivers, and providers. Issues include MS research funding, access to quality care, employment and insurance issues, and disability rights.
