We Need Legislative Liaisons in These States and Districts!

Feb 08, 2021

January 2021 saw the seating of a newly elected 117th Congress, and that means many Representatives and Senators have new committee assignments. At NAAF, we’re most interested in who serves on Appropriations, Finance, Energy & Commerce, HELP, Ways and Means, and L-HHS, as these key committees would likely be the ones to review and approve our cranial prosthetic legislation.

Please see the list of states below to see whether your Congressional Representative and/or Senator serves on a key committee. If they do, we need you to reach out to them now! Please contact Gary Sherwood at gary@naaf.org to learn how you can help with this initiative as a Legislative Liaison and form relationships with the offices of your elected officials.
