The Time Has Come to Pass the ALS Registry Act!
We have great news…the Senate is expected to vote on legislation that includes the ALS Registry Act as soon as this week! This is what we all have been working for. And it means that it’s absolutely critical that you contact your Senators and urge them to join us in our fight for a treatment and cure.
Late yesterday, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid introduced the Advancing America’s Priorities Act (S. 3297). The bill includes the ALS Registry Act as well as other legislation that has been blocked from consideration by Senator Tom Coburn. For the past several months, we have worked closely with Senator Reid behind the scenes to move the bill forward and now we have an opportunity to take the next step and pass the ALS Registry Act in the Senate!
This is the opportunity we have been working toward. And it may be our last and only chance to pass the bill this year, so we need your help TODAY.
A sample letter you can send to your Senators is available on the Advocacy Action Center (http://capwiz.com/alsa/home/) of our website. Please send the letter today and ask your Senators to vote for S. 3297, the Advancing
And please remember, only contact the Senators representing your state, for Senators are most responsive to their own constituents. If you don’t know the names of your Senators, don’t worry, the Advocacy Action Center will identify them for you.
After you send your letter, please forward this alert to your entire address book and tell your family, friends and colleagues to do so as well. We need as many people as possible to contact their Senators in support of S. 3297.
We will keep you up-to-date as the bill moves forward and the vote is scheduled. So please keep an eye out for our Action Alerts. We anticipate that several votes may take place and we will be asking you to reach out to your Senators before every vote!
We want to thank everyone in advance for their outreach. Together, we can pass the ALS Registry Act!
