At the Lobby Day Breakfast, participants representing a wide spectrum of USGLC’s membership (including Boeing, CARE, Mercy Corps, NEA, and Wal-Mart) heard from Senator Richard Durbin’s (D-IL) chief foreign policy adviser, Chris Homan, about the budget challenges this year. Lobby Day participants came armed with a specific message for Senators: sign-on to the bipartisan Kerry-Lugar-Durbin-Bond-Feinstein letter asking the Senate Appropriations Committee to fully fund the International Affairs Budget. Several Senators signed-on to the letter shortly after meetings with USGLC’s membership.
