The House Judiciary Committee intends to markup HR 5924, the Emergency Nursing Supply Relief Act, on Wednesday, September 10. Several other measures will also be marked up, including HR 5882, Congresswoman Lofgren's recapture legislation, HR 6020 (military), and HR 5950 (medical care for immigration detainees).
If the HJC successfully passes the measure it will allow the full House to act on HR 5924, giving us a ray of hope for action in 2008.
Please take a minute and review the list of Judiciary members. If you, your friends, or your family have any district-based connection with any of them, please reach out to these members (phone, email, fax, etc), let them know how important it is to get the bill passed this month and urge them to vote YEA on the bill. Constituent interest/support from key individuals, health care providers, recruiters and other organizations is critical at this stage.
