Congressional Cosponsor Support for EMS Legislative Issues Has Surged - Help Continue the Momentum!

Apr 28, 2016

A new surge in cosponsor support for NAEMT’s key EMS legislative issues is a direct result of EMS On The Hill Day meetings with Congressional leaders. But, it can’t stop here. All of us must do our part to keep consistent pressure on legislators not yet signed on as cosponsors. Visit their offices locally or contact them using the Online Legislative Service and ask them to become cosponsors. Together, we can bring the changes we want for EMS!
