Advocacy at a Glance

May 6, 2011

Advocacy at a Glance offers you the bullet point summary of current advocacy issues and the goal of a stronger FDA.

  • FY 2012 House Agriculture Appropriations Programmatic Subcommittee Requests  Due May 13.  To view instructions for submitting recommended programmatic language to the subcommittee please click here
  • Congressional Meetings.  The Alliance held several meetings this week with staff of members of the Agriculture Appropriations Subcommittees. In the coming weeks the Alliance will continue to hold meetings with congressional offices, with emphasis on House appropriators and leadership.
  • Debt Ceiling Watch.  In a letter sent to Congress this week, Treasury Secretary Geithner indicated that the new deadline to increase the debt ceiling has been moved from approximately July 8 to approximately August 2. He reiterated that it was important for Congress to pass legislation well in advance of that date.  This will give the White House and Congress more time shape a deal. Additional supportive information is available on the Treasury Notes blog site.
