Rep. Michaud Circulates NADO-Led Coalition Letter to Support EDA

Posted on: November 18th, 2011 by NADO Admin

On November 9, Rep. Mike Michaud (D-ME), circulated a NADO-led coalition letter to support the U.S. Economic Development Administration (EDA).  Twelve organizations, including the United States Conference of Mayors, the National Association of Counties, the National Association of Towns and Townships, and the International Economic Development Council, joined NADO in signing the letter.

In light of the recent calls and legislation (H.R. 3090) by Rep. Mike Pompeo (R-KS) to eliminate EDA, this letter was a great way for many organizations across the country to voice their support for the agency.  The letter was sent to each member of the U.S. House of Representatives with special copies sent to members of the House and Senate Appropriations Committees.  A copy of the coalition letter is available here.
