- NASEMSO Provided Comments on and Endorsement of the "Hartford Consensus II" (Sept. 24, 2013) This document was created by the Joint Committee to Create a National Policy to Enhance Survivability from Mass Casualty Shooting Events. NASEMSO commended the efforts of the Joint Committee in taking steps to address appropriate emergency medical response to an ever-increasing and tragic scenario in today’s world. The NASEMSO Medical Directors Council, comprised of the designated EMS medical director from the states and territories, recommended that the NASEMSO leadership endorse the Hartford Consensus II document, and provided specific comments, included in the Sept. 24 letter from Jim DeTienne, NASEMSO President.
- NASEMSO Joins 3,200 National, State and Local Organizations in Urging Members of Congress to Support a Balanced Approach to Deficit Reduction that does not Include Further Cuts to Discretionary Programs (02/11/13) As Congress faces the debt ceiling, fiscal year 2013 spending bills, sequestration, and the fiscal year 2014 budget, NASEMSO and a coalition of 3,200 national, state, and local organizations sent a letter to all Members of Congress urging them to support a balanced approach to deficit reduction that does not include further cuts to discretionary programs. The approach to deficit reduction has thus far been unbalanced. Discretionary programs have contributed $1.5 trillion in spending cuts from the Fiscal Year 2011 Continuing Resolution, the bipartisan Budget Control Act, and the bipartisan American Taxpayer Relief Act, while revenues have contributed just $600 billion. Additional cuts in discretionary programs would put the health, education, safety, and security of all Americans at risk. Coalition Letter to Members of Congress
