TELEPHONE CALL IN – SENATE BILL S.2921
Hello, my name is (identify yourself) and I am a constituent in your state.
I am calling today to urge you to contact Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky and Democratic Minority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada asking that S.2921, the Veterans First Act, be moved to the floor of the Senate for vote and passage before the scheduled summer recess.
This important legislation would establish within the Department of Veterans Affairs a national center for the research on diagnosis and treatment of the health conditions of the descendants of veterans exposed to toxic substances during service in the Armed Forces (S.901) and provides Caregivers benefits to Vietnam Veterans in your state.
Thank you for your attention to my request.(Leave your name, home address and phone number so the office can follow up with you later)
The Senate Veterans’ Affairs Committee has done its job and NOW it is time for Senate leadership to hold a floor vote on S. 2921, the Veterans First Act.
It is all about the one-minute phone call. Let your politicians know that you are watching and that you care.
Passage and enactment of S.2921 will begin to address the legacy of toxic exposures on the innocent victims and enhance benefits and services to those who answered our nation’s call in defense of our Constitution-- our Nation’s Veterans.
This is one of our last battles—Losing is not an option.
Make the call on June 22, 2016
