Texas Transactional Gold & Silver Special Session Support Campaign
So far, approximately 850 messages (updated) have been sent to Governor Abbott asking him to include transactional gold and silver in the next session. This on-going campaign supports a bill that would allow Texans to use modern banking applications to make transactions using silver and gold, thus hedging their finances against inflation and outside threats on the dollar.
Ohio HB 49 Hospital Price Transparency Senate Support Campaign
This campaign targets the Ohio Senate. This is a follow-up to a targeted campaign launched in April that asked the Ohio House Majority (Republican) Leadership to move this bill through the legislature. Now, we’re asking the Senate to vote YES on this bill for hospital price transparency that would use actual pricing, not cost estimates, so patients can compare real prices for medical services. We’ve been working with Patient Rights Advocates on this bill. So far, over 520 messages have been sent to the Ohio Senate by AMAC members.
Lower Costs, More Transparency Act
Over 11,810 messages have been sent by AMAC members thus far to the US House of Representatives urging support for the LCMT Act. This bill is still viable, and our advocacy continues to keep the LCMT in Congress’ lexicon with the objective of getting this bill passed later this year. Now that we have a Speaker, the House can get back to work on this legislation.
