We were on the schedule for September 29...then other bills required lengthy debate.
Finally, at 12:48AM on September 30, 2010, the Arthritis Prevention, Control and Cure Act passed in the United States House of Representatives without objection. Only ten minutes later did the House close up shop until November 15th. A big thanks to all Arthritis E-Advocates, Arthritis Ambassadors and Representative Anna Eshoo (D-CA) who shepherded this bill through the House. We've come a long way!
It's on to the Senate and now, more than ever, we need your support. When Congress returns in November we will have only a short period of time to get the bill out of the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee and onto the Senate floor for a vote. Please take a moment to write your Senators and request their support for the passage of the Arthritis Act.
Happy JA Awareness Month
