What You Can Do
Senate leadership has indicated they will vote on this legislation next week, and the Congressional Budget Office is also expected to release its assessment of the bill early next week. Now is the perfect time to email your Senators about the AHCA. You can quickly use the ACR’s Legislative Action Center to send a pre-filled, editable message to both of your Senators. You can also call U.S. Capitol Switchboard at (202) 224-3121 to be connected with their offices.
