My ask to all of you is help us…let’s do some work here.” U.S. Senate
“The favorable vote from the senate Energy is a huge step forward for the EMS Memorial project. The bill now moves to the Senate floor for consideration. The Foundation would like to thank Senator Murkowski (R-Alaska) and Senator Cantwell (D-Washington) for their bipartisan leadership and the entire committee for their support”, said Foundation Executive Director Katie Orsino. “Senator Murkowski’s opening remarks not only encourage the members of this committee but also the entire EMS community. Now is the time for everyone in EMS to contact their respective Senators and simply ask for their support of Senate 1692. Let’s do some work here.”
