EDC Builds Momentum Around FREED!

The EDC is proud to announce that 35 organizations are now in support of the FREED act, and that we now have twelve congressional co-sponsors on the bill! The current co-sponsors include: Representatives Dan Burton (R, IN), Russ Carnahan (D, MO), Gerald Connolly (D, VA), John Conyers (D, MI), Joe Courtney (D, CT), Diana DeGette (D, CO), Jo Ann Emerson (R, MO), Steven LaTourette (R, OH), James Moran (D, VA), Todd Platts (R, PA), Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R, FL), Christopher Smith (R, NJ).

Many thanks to all of those who came out to support the cause on Lobby Day last April and who continue to support our efforts in a myriad of other ways. This progress is the result of your efforts! We at the EDC are continuing to work hard to build even further momentum around FREED, and with that in mind, we hope you’ll stay involved by joining us at our next Lobby Day coming up this September.
