The Collective Public Policy Voice of the Exchange Community

This is a call to action regarding a number of amendments to the House’s Department of State funding bill that eliminate funding for DOS educational and cultural exchange programs. Amendment 38 (#158) submitted by Rep. Mast (R-FL, 21) threatens to eliminate all funding for these DOS exchange programs, similar to last fall’s proposed amendment from Rep. Andy Biggs. Amendment 1 (#83) and Amendment 13 (#15), introduced by Rep. Brecheen (R-OK, 2) and Rep. Gosar (R-AZ, 9), also seek to cut funding for DOS exchanges in various ways.

This issue is extremely urgent, as these amendments to the House’s DOS funding bill could be voted on the House floor as early as tomorrow, Wednesday, June 26. Ask your Representative to oppose these amendments by sending a letter RIGHT NOW!
