Take Action Against Pain
The National Pain Care Policy Act (H.R.
1863) is the most comprehensive pain care bill ever introduced in Congress.
Representative Mike Rogers (MI-8) is the bill’s sponsor; 42 other members of
Congress have signed on in support. The bill was referred to committee, but
stalled there. The American Pain Foundation and Partners for Understanding Pain
are working with Rep. Rogers to get the bill moving again. Americans concerned
about the lack of and/or access to treatment for pain should contact their
representatives to express their support for this bill. Copies of these messages
will be delivered to Rep. Rogers as well, impressing upon him the need for
his continued leadership on this important bill. You can read the entire bill
