U.S Senate Votes to Protect Medical Research Funding

U.S. Senate Votes to Protect Medical Research Funding

On Tuesday, June 7th,  the U.S. Senate protected important, innovative MS research funded by the Congressional Directed Medical Research Program (CDMRP) — thanks to MS activists!

MS activists’ outreach over the past week increased bipartisan co-sponsorship of the amendment and helped achieve this victory. More than 4,390 letters were sent and countless calls were made to Capitol Hill. As Senator McCain said during floor debate, “our phones have been ringing off the hook.”

If your Senator(s) voted for the amendment, please send him/her a thank you message.

The MS CDMRP received a $1 million increase in FY 2016–for a total of $6 million. In FY 2017, the House Appropriations Committee approved the same $6 million for the MS CDMRP. The Senate Appropriations Committee does not provide specific funding for the MS CDMRP, but has recommended a five percent increase over its 2016 funding level for medical research.
