Save the IBD Bill: Only a few weeks left!
Time is running out for the IBD Bill. A new Congress will convene in 2011, and there are only a few more weeks left for the current Congress to be in session. Your legislator is a member of the House Energy and Commerce Committee, and the IBD Bill is under their jurisdiction. 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 ask your legislator to move this critical bill through their committee before the end of the year!
It takes so little time to support the Bill and help the 1.4 million Americans living with IBD. Here are other things you can do to help:
–Post a “call to action” on your Facebook page or Twitter feed
–Call a loved one and ask them to send a letter or help spread the word
—Send an e-mail to your friends and family letting them know how much this Bill means to you, and what they can do to help.
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.
