The U.S. House of Representatives has started work on the Fiscal Year 2014 annual appropriations process. A bipartisan sign-on letter led by Congressmen Gus Bilirakis (R-FL) and Frank Pallone (D-NJ), indicating support for the Health Centers program has begun circulating, and the deadline for signatures is TOMORROW, April 17th.
A big THANK YOU to Congressmen John Dingell, Daniel Kildee, Sander Levin, and Gary Peters, all Michigan Democrats, who have already signed on to the letter. To date, 153 representatives have signed the letter.
Health Center advocates can help by requesting that your U.S. Representative support Health Centers by 1) Signing on to the Bilirakis-Pallone letter, and 2) Submitting an individual programmatic request in support of full funding for Health Centers.
