NKF Priorities for the 113th Congress

Congress and the White House are faced with decisions on the federal debt limit and the resolution of Fiscal Year 2013 spending, while at the same time considering the FY 2014 budget. These responsibilities have set the tone for the year. NKF is balancing its efforts between protecting federal programs that benefit kidney patients and building support for new opportunities and needs.

Issues and Legislation

The NKF helps to shape public policy on behalf of kidney disease patients. We work with Congress, federal agencies, and state governments to further legislation and regulation that improve the care and quality of life of kidney disease patients.
