Sample letter for contacting your Member in the House:


Dear Rep. [last name],

As a constituent in your district, I urge you to support H.R. 7539, the Long-term Opportunities for Advancing New Studies (LOANS) for Biomedical Research Act, which authorizes a loan program for clinical trials that have received FDA clearance and are focused on boosting development of much-needed treatments and cures for a broad range of conditions including cancer, heart disease, diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease, and blinding eye diseases such as glaucoma and macular degeneration.

The LOANS Act addresses this gap in investment by creating a unique financial instrument that would mobilize the financial capital of long-term investors to provide low interest loans to companies at the cutting edge of developing treatments and cures across the spectrum of disease and disability. Importantly, these loans would have minimal impact on taxpayers, because they must be repaid by the therapy developer.

[Add a brief personal comment here, if desired, to explain why H.R. 7539 is important to you and your family.]

Thank you for considering support for this critical legislation.
