Thanks to their diligent work educating Members of Congress, rare disease advocates were successful in expanding the ranks of the Rare Disease Congressional Caucus. In March, nine legislators agreed to join the Rare Disease Congressional Caucus:

Senator James Risch (Idaho)
Senator David Vitter (Louisiana)RDCC-Horizontal-CMYK
Representative Brad Ashford (NE-2)
Representative David Cicilline (RI-1)
Representative John Garamendi (CA-3)
Representative Joe Kennedy, III (MA-4)
Representative Donald Norcross (NJ-1)
Representative David Rouzer (NC-7)
Representative Juan Vargas (CA-51)

We applaud these legislators for taking leadership on the issues that are important to the rare disease community. You can find the complete Rare Disease Congressional Caucus membership at http://rareadvocates.org/rarecaucus/.
