Reps Recessing: Make Your Voice Heard
The Congressional recess (U.S. House of Representatives, July 31 through Sept. 7; U.S. Senate, Aug. 7 through Sept. 7) provides an excellent opportunity to weigh in your thoughts on health care reform and other issues affecting your work.
What the House and Senate members hear and read during their recess will be extremely important in determining their votes.
You might even consider asking your House member to schedule a visit to your chapter, clinic, or facility.
