    AALAS has emailed the entire membership with a request to use the NABR Capwiz system to support HR 3136. This legislation will help improve transparency at the USDA. AALAS has already signed onto the coalition letter. Please send a pre-written message to their representatives. According to NABR, AALAS members have generated approximately 100 emails to the Hill already. Hopefully that number can grow once we reach out to branch members as well!
