Dear All:

Please spread a word among your colleagues:
Act Now to Support Aging & Longevity Research in the American Recovery and Reinvestment Bill of 2009

The new Congress is moving quickly on the American Recovery and Reinvestment Bill of 2009. Appropriations Chairman Obey hopes to see the bill on the House floor this Wednesday, January 28.

The bill has critical funding for the US National Institutes of Health (NIH), including the National Institute on Aging (NIA). Call your representatives today, tomorrow or Wednesday and urge them to support the legislation.

If you support National Institutes of Health (NIH) and National Institute on Aging (NIA) in particular, please contact your U.S. Representatives via email with the below message of support. Please thank them for recognizing the importance of these agencies, and please make your message more personal by stating how these agencies are important to you and your research institutions.

Contact information for members of the U.S. House of Representatives:

Draft message of support:
Re: National Institutes of Health

The American Recovery and Reinvestment Bill of 2009 includes $3.9 billion for the National Institutes of Health (NIH). The NIH needs this money to recover from years of being funded below the rate of inflation, and to invest in vital aging & longevity research programs through the National Institute on Aging (NIA). [Add your own words here, using some of these suggestions]. I urge you to support this bill and thank you for your support.

Thank you, and, if you can, please call your Members of Congress today!

Key words:
Aging Research, Longevity Research, US Congress, American Recovery and Reinvestment Bill of 2009, National Institutes of Health (NIH), National Institute on Aging (NIA), U.S. House of Representatives

Hello, Im wondering how long a bill like this stays on the floor of congress. Is it just one day? If we send out letters that get there on thursday or friday is that going to be too late?

This is an important bill, If your reading this, dont pass up this opportunity to support your life. Your life could depend on it.
