Support for Lung Cancer Legislation Continues to Grow; Covers Broad Spectrum

Washington, DC [September 14, 2011] -- Today, Lung Cancer Alliance (LCA) announced recent additions to the growing network of support for federal action on lung cancer that covers a broad spectrum of interests, ranging from national medical and international research organizations, to veterans and labor groups, to public health advocates, and to congressional support on Capitol Hill.

In the past two months, 20 more national and international groups have publicly come out in support of the Lung Cancer Mortality Reduction Act (LCMRA), and more members of both Houses of Congress have signed on as co-sponsors to the legislation, which now total 20 in the U.S. Senate and 28 in the House of Representatives.

The legislation, S. 752 and H.R. 1394, re-introduced in the new Congress earlier this year is the first-ever calling for a coordinated and comprehensive federal plan to address all aspects of lung cancer.
