Advocate: Reply from Senator Boxer

Thursday, February 12, 2009
The following message is from Senator Boxer. I wish it was more detailed, as it doesn't even mention the reason I wrote her. I think it was for SCHIP, but it could have been for an NPR broadcast...I wrote her about both. At any rate, just getting the reply is yet again enough to keep moving forward in this area. Only one more issue to write to my representatives about and I fulfill my New Year's Resolution!

Here is the response from Senator Boxer:

Dear Mr. Smith:
