July Push Needed for HR 1830 Co-sponsors


Thanks to your efforts, we are making progress in the House and gaining more co-sponsors for the Accelerating the End of Breast Cancer Act (H.R. 1830). As of now, we have 156 Representatives co-sponsoring. But we need more! 

H.R. 1830 is the exact same bill that had 236 co-sponsors in the last Congress. All the Representatives on this list were co-sponsors on that exact same bill but they have not yet added their name to H.R. 1830. They need to hear from you! 

A big, successful July push targeting these Representatives who supported the bill previously is needed. We need you and your networks contacting them with the message we need their support for this legislation again. Focusing on this list of Representatives who have co-sponsored in the past can easily get us to the 218 we need and will position us well for moving the bill.  

Action:  Contact the Representatives from your state who are on this list and urge them to co-sponsor the Accelerating the End of Breast Cancer Act, H.R. 1830, a bipartisan bill that would establish a Commission with the mission to help end breast cancer by January 1, 2020.  Let the Representative know that he/she co-sponsored the exact same bill in the last Congress. 

If a Representative agrees to co-sponsor the bill, the Health LA should email one of our lead sponsor offices: Adam Tomlinson in Representative Shelley Moore Capito’s office or Elizabeth Brown in Representative Kathy Castor’s office. It is also very important that you let us know immediately that you have received a commitment to co-sponsor. 

Please contact your Representatives immediately. As always, thanks for your amazing advocacy!
