New Cosponsor for The FGIMD Research Enhancement Act

June 07, 2013

The day after the 2013 Digestive Health Congressional Call-In Day, Representative James (Jim) McGovern became a cosponsor of The Functional Gastrointestinal & Motility Disorders Research Enhancement Act (H.R. 842).  In cosponsoring this important legislation, Representative McGovern joins eight of his colleagues in the U.S. House of Representatives, including Representatives Sensenbrenner (WI-5), Moran (VA-8), Brownley (CA-26), Moore (WI-4), Rush (IL-1), Kind (WI-3), Davis (CA-53), and Welch (VT).

Congressman McGovern represents Massachusetts' second congressional district.  If you live in Representative McGovern's district, please send him an email to thank him for his support of the many Americans affected by functional gastrointestinal and motility disorders. 

The support of cosponsors like Congressman McGovern is important in helping H.R. 842 become law.  Cosponsors become champions for their legislation, and help it to move along in the legislative process.  If your Representative is not yet a cosponsor of The FGIMD Research Enhancement Act, make sure that they know how important this legislation is.  Send an email to your Representative to let them know that their constituents care about this bill, and that they should support it.   Congress will only act if you ask, so ask today.
