Government Affairs Advocacy

Senate passed, but House rejected a resolution including $7 billion funding for the National Institute of Health. If you would like to read about the bill or take action showing your support, go to the National MS Society.

Another resolution being considered is the Elderly Pharmaceutical Insurance Program (EPIC), a New York State sponsored prescription plan for senior citizens who need help paying for their prescriptions. The National MS Society would like to see EPIC expanded to include those of us with a disability or chronic illness, to fill in the gaps in the Medicare drug benefit. To read about this bill, go to the National MS Society.

Make your voice count.
