Victory!
Senate Passes the ALS Registry Act

A few minutes ago, the United States Senate passed the ALS Registry Act! Thanks to your outreach, we have just won a huge victory for people with ALS and their families across the country. We have made a difference!

The bill now heads to the House, which is expected to quickly agree to the Senate version, which included technical changes made during the legislative process. We will keep you updated as the bill moves toward enactment into law.

Congratulations to everyone!

I'm but a small fish in a very big pond. Every person out there that emailed their senators has played a pivotal role in making this happen all I did was pass on information. So I say thank you to everyone who did their part.

Hi There, just read my e-mail from ALSA. Had two the other was Veterans will automatically get maximum Benefits, no matter when you were diagnosed. ALS will be treated as Military connected. This is another Victory. My Best to all, Beebe

Something to celebrate for a change! Thanks for updating us Jeff. Now it's Washington's turn to step out of their box and get the ball rolling.

One more person does make a difference. We need to remember that in November also!

Thanks again,

Patty
