Who We Are
How Your Congressional Member Can Help
In the Appropriations process, House and Senate Appropriations Committee staff will look for respective member requests when developing their budgets. The best way to ensure level funding for the MEP program in FY15 is to have as many Representatives and Senators submit individual programmatic requests as possible.
To make the process as easy as possible for your local members, ASMC has developed (for you to customize) Member to Member and Senate to Senate letters for you to send to congressional staff to assist them in the process.
Centers and client can email your local Senators and their staff requesting the Congressman sign onto the Dear Colleague Letter (DCL). The letter will be sent to Senate CJS Chairman Mikulski (D-MD),and Ranking Member Shelby (R-AL).
