The NAC Advocacy Team “Takes the Hill”on
May 10, 2016 fighting for the”Right To Try” Act.
Our team met with several members of Congress and testified at hearings, briefings and press conferences pressing for support for these pending bills.
H.R. 3012 / S. 2912 The Right to Try Act
S. 2388 The RESULT Act
S. 2689 The REGROW Act
On our second trip to Washington D.C., the NAC advocacy team was able to meet with several Senators and their staff . Frank Mongiello and Matt Bellina spoke at Senator Ron Johnson’s press conference announcing the Senate version of The Right to Try Act. Additionally, Frank and Matt spoke at a briefing for House of Representatives’ staff about Right to Try legislation. They were also featured lecturers in a Senate staff briefing with Senator Mark Kirk for the REGROW Act. Matt and Frank were invited To Capitol Hill by these Senators to testify in person at these hearings. We are gaining momentum on the Hill, but much work remains to see these bills passed into law and time is of the essence.
We plan to travel to Washington D.C. again in 2 weeks to press for more support on both sides of Congress.
