On July 28, 2011 Senators Lamar Alexander (R-TN) and Michael Bennet (D-CO) and Representatives Anna Eshoo (D-CA) and Leonard Lance (R-NJ) introduced the PREEMIE Reauthorization Act (S. 1440/HR 2679), which will expand research, education and intervention activities related to preterm birth and infant mortality. The bill is currently awaiting consideration in both the House and Senate.
The March of Dimes is leading an advocacy campaign to secure enactment, which is currently focused on bringing in cosponsors for the bill. We encourage anyone interested in the bill to sign up for our advocacy network and make their voice heard in the U.S. Congress.
