Take Action Now--Ask Your Representative to Sign-On to the Trauma Funding Letter by this Thursday!

TCAA and our advocacy partners worked with Dr. Burgess (R-TX) and Reps. Green (R-TX), Hudson (R-NC), and Rush (D-IL) to craft and circulate a Dear Colleague letter requesting funding for all four of the Trauma and Emergency Care Programs. More specifically, the letter calls for Congress to include $28 million of implementation funding in the FY 2017 Labor/HHS/Education Appropriations Act. While the total authorized level of funding for all of these programs is $224 million, given the continuing and very challenging fiscal environment on Capitol Hill, we are requesting a $28 million level of funding.  

TCAA members should continue to reach out to their Members of Congress in the House of Representatives to sign-on to the Dear Colleague letter in the House by March 17.  For more information on this effort, to view the letter and Hill staff contact information, please visit TCAA.

Note congressional offices interested in joining the letter, should reach out to James Decker with Rep. Burgess, MD at or Kristen O’Neill with Rep. Green at
