Take Action


CONGRESSIONAL HOUSE RESOLUTION 116

In 2012, the Alliance secured 53 co-sponsors on Congressional House Resolution 116. We are now seeking a sponsor to reintroduce the resolution to the 113th Congress.  The follow-up actions of Alliance member Capitol Hill visits, letters, and emails being conducted by McBee continues to yield positive results.  Combined with the activities of Thrivent and the Knights of Columbus, we are slowly building momentum for the measure. The Presidents Mid-Year Meeting will include attendee visits to the Hill to highlight the good work and great number of members of the fraternal benefit system.

Check back for information as to how you can help in this effort.
