As we reported last week to our membership, the new Congress has already begun business in Washington for its 2017-2019 legislative session. A total of 55 new Freshman Members of Congress from states and districts across the country are now settling-in to legislate on a full slate of issues, including those that impact biomedical research with animal studies.
In order to introduce these new lawmakers to NABR, its membership, and the various issues facing the future of biomedical research, NABR has sent a welcome letter (log-in required) to them and the rest of the 115th Congress. NABR encourages you to do the same. If you'd like to voice your support for biomedical research in this upcoming Congress and Presidential Administration, please click here to send a pre-written letter to the President, Vice President, both of your Senators, your Congressperson and the U.S. Department of Agriculture. This is a tiny investment of your time that will pay significant dividends in terms of educating policy makers about the irreplaceable value of humane animal research.
