Congressional Committees

ACKC is currently seeking Congressional approval for appropriating $15 million to the Congressionally Directed Medical Research Programs (CDMRPs) managed by the Department of Defense. Two Dear Colleague letters were written and signed by members of Congress requesting the appropriation of the $15 million. One letter went to the Chairman and Ranking Member of the Senate Defense Appropriations Subcommittee and the other letter went to the Chairman and Ranking Member of the House Military Quality of Life and Veterans Affairs and Related Agencies Appropriation Subcommittee.

If you are a constituent of any of these Senators or Representatives and they have not signed on to the Dear Colleague letter, please make your voice heard. Contact ACKC for any assistance you need to contact your elected representatives.
