In an Email from the MS Action Network

Announcing the New Congressional MS Caucus in the Senate

Senator Byron Dorgan (ND) and
Senator Orrin Hatch (UT)
have agreed to serve as the co-chairs of the new Congressional Multiple Sclerosis Caucus in the U.S. Senate. We are confident that the leadership of these two prominent Senators will help raise awareness and provide education about MS on Capitol Hill. Like the House MS Caucus, the Congressional MS Caucus in the Senate provides MS activists with champions in Congress. When we have an MS issue that needs attention (such as funding for MS research), we will look to the MS Caucus for their support. This bi-partisan body will serve as a forum for members of Congress, their staff, related organizations, and individuals to discuss critical healthcare, disability, research, and other issues affecting people living with MS and other conditions. Once the Senate MS Caucus is formerly announced, you will be able to help recruit your Senators to join.
The House MS Caucus is growing significantly — now 72 members. View the most up-to-date list in the left column of the MS Activist Blog.
