Statement from Barbara J. Newhouse, President and CEO of The ALS Association, Regarding Today’s Passage of Steve Gleason Act

The ALS Association is so proud of the work that was done to pass the Steve Gleason Act. We commend Congresswoman McMorris Rodgers, Congressmen Paulsen and Scalise, and Senator Vitter for their leadership and steadfast efforts to make sure this important legislation was presented and ultimately passed. We also applaud Steve Gleason for his efforts in leading this charge. He inspired legislative leaders, The ALS Association, the entire ALS community, and many other assistive technology groups and organizations to mobilize together to effect positive change for people fighting this terrible disease.
