I work closely with Meredith where we at PCRID has been supporting her organization, MDAD. We both are excited to finally release and share our works on this bill, which is known as Draft #5, to you all. We want you have the opportunity to review the draft—we welcome any questions and inquiries! You may send in an email to a joint email account that is monitored by both MDAD and PCRID. We hope to collect everybody’s input to answer at once-- (a subtitle shown during this video with this text: “

Please understand that we couldn’t address each email individually but we will at least confirm the receipt of your email. With your input via emails, we will incorporate in consideration while finalizing the draft bill.

We hope you can use your time this week and over the weekend—you have 4 to 5 days as we need to collect everybody’s input by/on August 22.
