Government Shutdown and SIV update.
Oct 1, 2013 — Thank you to the Senate for taking the initiative to pass the SIV legislation as a standalone bill! Now, its the House's turn to act.
On a positive note, the Senate's actions have raised awareness with the House and Rep. Eric Cantor R.-Va. office's, a huge SIV supporter, is currently working on the SIV crisis. Please continue pouring in signatures and thank Rep. Cantor for his continued efforts!
I again express my thanks to Sens. Jeanne Shaheen, D-N.H., John McCain, R-Ariz., Patrick Leahy, D-Vt., and Lindsey Graham, R.-S.C., for passing the standalone bill in the Senate.
