NFDA Advocacy Summit: Celebrating 25 Years of Funeral Directors Making a Difference in D.C.
For Immediate Release: February 11, 2016
Brookfield, Wis. – Members of the National Funeral Directors Association (NFDA) will make their way to the nation's capitol for the association's 25th annual Advocacy Summit, which will take place April 27-29. The 2016 Advocacy Summit will be critical because funeral directors will have a chance to continue discussions on the issues they brought to Congress last year. Additionally, with 2016 being a presidential election year, NFDA needs members' help to ensure funeral service issues stay top-of-mind.

Washington, D.C. Update: February 8, 2016
Congress returned to Washington last week after an unexpectedly slow week due to the blizzard and its aftermath. The House focused on overriding a veto from President Barack Obama over the repeal of the Affordable Care Act that Congressional Republicans passed through the Budget Reconciliation process. House Republicans won the vote in a 241-186 count, but because a two-thirds majority is needed to overturn a veto, the attempt failed.
