When the Breakthrough Act was introduced in 2007, it took 19 months to gain 92 cosponsors and the bill was never brought to a vote.
The Alzheimer’s Breakthrough Act (S.1492/H.R.3286) was reintroduced in July. Over the last five months, efforts by Alzheimer advocates have helped bring 101 cosponsors to support this bill.
Although we still have a long way to go in the process of the Breakthrough Act becoming law, we need to keep up the momentum to add more cosponsors to this bipartisan bill.
