FLEOA Supports Right to Try Hearing

September 22, 2016

The Honorable Ron Johnson, Chairman
The Honorable Thomas Carper, Ranking Member
Committee on Homeland Security & Governmental Affairs
United States Senate
Washington, DC, 20510

Dear Mr. Chairman and Ranking Member Carper:

I am pleased to submit this statement on behalf of the membership of the Federal Law Enforcement Officers Association (FLEOA) for today’s hearing, entitled "Exploring a Right to Try for Terminally Ill Patients.” FLEOA is a non-partisan, non-profit professional organization representing more than 26,000 federal law enforcement officers from 65 agencies. This hearing will allow for a broader conversation about the rights of terminally ill Americans and their ability to access treatment options. We also understand and support the Chairman's legislation, S. 2912, the "Trickett Wendler Right to Try Act,” which will extend a right to Americans who currently have none and give them an option to "fight" their illness. We respectfully request that this statement be made a part of the hearing record.
