    Take Action - Save A Billion Dollars

    I try not to be political on this blog but at time everyone needs to take some action. 

    What's Happening:
    Congress is set to pass a continuing resolution, which will keep funding at 2006 levels throughout all of 2007, and means HIV/AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis programs will not receive a billion dollars in increased funding for the new year.

    (More info: http://action.one.org/blog/comments.jsp?blog_entry_KEY=329&t= )

    Take Action:
    Thankfully, there is still a limited amount of funds available for the 2007 budget, and our leaders in Congress are tasked with doling out these funds. Senators Durbin and  Brownback and Representatives Lee and Shays have drafted "Dear Colleague" letters urging congressional leadership to use as much of the money as possible to fund these critical programs.

    The more senators and representatives who sign these "Dear Colleague" letters, the more likely congressional leadership will decide to give a large portion of the funding back.


    Please urge your readers to contact their representatives today using our take action page.
