Contact Your Representative
Representatives Jim McGovern (MA), Kay Granger (TX) and Lucille Roybal-Allard (CA), the bipartisan Co-chairs of the Congressional Study Group on Public Health, are inviting their colleagues in Congress to join them on a letter in support of increasing the CDC’s core program budget to $8.6 billion in FY 2010. Please visit the Campaign for Public Health’s Web site to contact your Representative and urge him or her to sign on to the letter.
The letter to Labor Health and Human Services and Education Chairman David Obey (WI) and Ranking Member Todd Tiahrt (KS) (PDF) asks the Committee for a $2 billion increase in CDC’s core program funding – from today’s $6.6 billion to $8.6 billion in FY 2010. The deadline to sign the letter is April 3, so take action today!
