What's next for the federal Tourette Syndrome bill?

Hey guys, I thought I’d give you an update on my previous post.  As a recap, the amendment on the Public Service Health Act would establish regional centers across the country to conduct research into the cause, diagnosis, early detection, prevention, control and treatment of Tourette Syndrome and associated disorders.

Here’s the good news: The next vote for bill H.R. 3760, the Collaborative Academic Research Efforts for Tourette Syndrome Act of 2011, will come in the House of Representatives if it successfully makes it out of committee.

Here’s the bad news: Only 8 percent of bills actually make it out of committee and into the House.

So what can you do?  You can continue calling your representatives by following the instructions on my previous post!  The more support that this bill gets, the more likely it is that it is passed! Thanks for all the help, and I’ll be sure to update you guys as more news on the bill comes in.
