Letter to Congressional Leaders About Special Diabetes Program

December 10, 2020

To Speaker Pelosi, Leader McCarthy, Leader McConnell, and Leader Schumer:

“When Congress passes short-term extensions, it creates a false sense of security that programs will continue to be funded while members work to reach consensus on other issues. However, passing another short-term extension of SDP would be extremely harmful to the program, especially during this current crisis. We urge you to pass a long-term (five-year) extension of SDP at $150 million per program, per year."
