The rally included addresses from Sens Jon Tester (D-MT) and Roger Wicker (R-MS). Following the rally, participants went to prearranged meetings to seek support of the Medicare Access to Rehabilitation Services Act (HR 1546/S 829), legislation that would repeal the cap on outpatient rehabilitative services for Medicare beneficiaries, the Physical Therapist Student Loan Repayment Eligibility Act (HR 1426/S 975), and the Protecting Student Athletes from Concussions Act (HR 469).
