HB5901 up for a vote Wednesday, May 23. Contact your senators!

HB5901 is moving very quickly though the legislature. It passed in the House of Representatives with 69 yes votes and 39 no votes. It now goes to the Senate Appropriations Committee TOMORROW, Wednesday, May 23!

We NEED you to add your information to the downloadable Letter of Support and then send it to your state senator. Encourage your staff to do this as well. Volume matters!

Please be sure to read the template before sending so that all of your information replaces the info in parentheses. Don’t know who your senator is, or how to contact? Click here to find them. You can click through to their respective pages for their contact info. Also, if your hospital is in a different district than your residence you can send two! One as a resident and one as a trauma professional.

We have been working on this for months (years), and the time has come to make the final push. Thanks for all you do for trauma in the state of Michigan. Let’s get this bill passed!
