Are Any of Your Legislators Healthcare Committee Members?

The very first hurdle for our new bills will be passing them out of their respective Healthcare Committees. It is imperative to convince these legislators to support our bills and amendments.

If you are a committee member's constituent, your contacts with your legislator are supersized. Your calls, emails, letters and bill comments are vital! To find your legislative district, go here and enter your address.

We've indicated other important leadership roles and committee assignments such as Ways and Means and Rules Committees. Those legislators are particularly influential for moving bills through the process to passage.
