Re: The Functional Gastrointestinal and Motility Disorders Research Enhancement Act
      12/19/11 09:31 AM

The 7th sponsor/cosponsor, Representative Maurice Hinchey (D-NY-22) has signed on. Apparently, I missed posting here when the 6th, Representative Tammy Baldwin (D-WI-2) signed on last month. Representative Baldwin was the original sponsor of HRes 1309, the resolution for IBS awareness last year.

This is a bill supported by both parties. No new taxes or spending are involved. The NIH has funds if Congress directs it to budget it for functional GI disorders. In order to pass in this Congress, the Act must reach a simple majority of 219 by December 2012. If not, we have to start over with a new bill and a new Congress in 2013. While this isn't unusual for any legislation, our ongoing advocacy can increase awareness and momentum and perhaps accelerate passage. Congress is not in session right now due to the holidays, but they will return to Washington by January 17. Please contact your Representatives.
