    Instead of mailing a letter, you can send e-mail to Rep. Gingrich
    and Senator Domenici(appropriations chair)!

    Hon. Newt Gingrich
    Hon. Pete Domenici

    or you can call the Capitol Switchboard (800) 768-2221 and ask to speak to
    Senators Dole and Domenici. Ask their aides to support funding NIH at the levels
    proposed in the House version of the bill.

    If you do write a letter, use your work as an example of the positive impact of
    medical research on improving the quality of life of Americans. Make sure
    your letter is concise and clear.
