We Asked, You Answered: Top Five States Who Took Action Against Sequestration
In December, the threat of sequestration on nutrition programs was a major concern for the Academy. As a result, a grassroots campaign to urge Congress to protect nutrition programs was initiated. Nearly 8,000 letters from members were sent to Congress during the campaign.
Congratulations to the top five states who took action by sending members of Congress the Academy’s sequestration action alert: North Dakota (14 percent), Maine (9.5 percent), Illinois (8.6 percent), Maryland (8.3 percent) and Idaho (8.2 percent). Thank you to all states who sent letters and increased our voice on Capitol Hill.
