There was significant politicking surrounding the debt ceiling bill. President Obama signed the legislation which will keep our nation moving forward. More work lies ahead for Congress. A joint congressional committee must now be named in order to identify additional spending cuts.
The AVMA and the GRD will continue its work with Congress, the joint committee, House and Senate committees as well as others to ensure spending cuts do not hamper critical programs that would affect the profession and the country.
Our goal will be to recommend savings that will make the most sense for our members and preserve the most integrity for programs that serve America’s veterinarians, animals and public.
