Save the IBD Bill: Only a few weeks left!
Legislators returned to Washington this week for the beginning of the "Lame Duck" session of the outgoing 111th Congress. A new Congress will convene in 2011 -- there are only a few more weeks left for the current Congress to be in session. If the Bill is not passed by the end of the year, we are back to the drawing board -- a new Congress means that a new Bill must be introduced, new co-sponsors must sign on, and the entire process will begin again.
Please don't let this happen. It takes so little time to support the Bill and help the 1.4 million Americans living with IBD. Five minutes is all it takes to do one of these:
If you've already done any -- or all -- of the above, we thank you for your support, and ask that you give us just five MORE minutes of your time. Please do what you can! Many voices, working together, will help push this Bill forward at this very critical time. Take action today!
