Promising Pathway Act Update.
The Promising Pathway Act is a bill introduced into Congress that we are trying to get passed. For details and to help it along, go to virtualtrials.com/activism.cfm
I wanted to share with you an update on it’s status. There are now 10 cosponsors, 6 republican and 4 democrats:
Rep. Gallagher, Mike [R-WI-8]*
Rep. Swalwell, Eric [D-CA-15]*
Rep. Westerman, Bruce [R-AR-4]*
Rep. Van Drew, Jefferson [R-NJ-2]
Rep. Napolitano, Grace F. [D-CA-32]
Rep. Bacon, Don [R-NE-2]
Rep. Fitzpatrick, Brian K. [R-PA-1]
Rep. Craig, Angie [D-MN-2]
Rep. King, Peter T. [R-NY-2]
Rep. Beatty, Joyce [D-OH-3]
Unfortunately, that means there are 425 representatives in the House that are not cosponsors! We need more. If we can get to 290 cosponsors, then we can bypass a lot of red tape.
So far we sent over 6,500 letters from our website. That is a great start but we need many more! If your representative is on the list above – send them a note of thanks. If not, send them a request to become a cosponsor!
