Happy Monday!


Just wanted to send this email as an update to mention our progress on S. 212, the Access Technology Affordability Act. This past week we have added two Senate cosponsors. Senator Todd Young, republican from Indiana and Senator Patrick Leahy, democrat from Vermont. This is tremendous news and I’d like to congratulate our affiliates from Indiana and Vermont on the fantastic job! Senator Leahy is the Chairman of the Appropriations committee as well as the President Pro Tempore of the Senate so this was an important cosponsor to add to the list. Senator Todd Young is a member of the Senate Finance committee which oversees this legislation so again this is an incredible cosponsor to add. 


Please continue the great work! We are gaining momentum and cannot let up as we enter the dog days of summer.


All the best,


Jeff Kaloc
