PRESIDENT SIGNS HARPER’S KIDS FIRST BILL


Thursday April 3, 2014: Press release WASHINGTON, DC – Following a White House bill signing ceremony, U.S. Rep. Gregg Harper (R-Miss.) – author of the “Gabriella Miller Kids First Research Act” – applauded the enactment of this law, which funds pediatric medical research with the money previously designated for political nominating conventions:

“Inspired by Gabriella Miller’s captivating advocacy, this law gives hope to our country’s most vulnerable kids. Kids fighting life-threatening conditions. Kids facing developmental disorders. And kids like Evie Horton from my home state, whose strength and determination in overcoming the struggles of Spinal Muscular Atrophy continuously energizes my public service. I am thrilled that lawmakers in both chambers with varying political views recognized the value of expanded and improved medical research and set aside differences to advance this practical act.”
