Another Cosponsor for H.R. 842

May 28, 2013

Representative Peter Welch (VT-AL) became the eighth cosponsor of The Functional Gastrointestinal & Motility Disorders Research Enhancement Act of 2013 (H.R. 842) on May 23, 2013. He joins Representatives Sensenbrenner (WI-5), Moran (VA-8), Brownley (CA-26), Moore (WI-4), Rush (IL-1), Kind (WI-3), and Davis (CA-53).  Representative Welch was one of the first cosponsors of The FGIMD Research Enhancement Act of 2011 in the 112th Congress, and we appreciate his continued support of these chronic digestive disorders. 

If you live in Vermont, please thank Representative Welch for his support by sending him a quick email

If your Representative is not yet a cosponsor of The Functional GI & Motility Disorders Research Enhancement Act (H.R. 842), take a minute to ask for their support. Functional gastrointestinal and motility disorders affect millions of Americans, and H.R. 842 will significantly improve our scientific understanding of these conditions and stimulate breakthroughs in diagnosis and treatment. However, H.R. 842 is one of thousands of bills before Congress, and it will only become a law if you help bring attention to it. Make your Representative aware of the importance of The FGIMD Research Enhancement Act (H.R. 842) and ask them to become a cosponsor of this critical legislation.
