State Success: New Jersey Governor Signs MS Task Force Bill

A bill sponsored by Senator Fred Madden (D-Washington Township) that would establish the New Jersey Multiple Sclerosis Task Force within the Department of Health and Senior Services (DHSS) was signed into law earlier this month. This legislation will establish a 14-member committee, made up health officials, representatives of the Society, and people living with MS, to develop strategies and provide recommendations that will improve the lives of people living with MS in New Jersey.

This is a great victory for the New Jersey Metro and the Greater Delaware Valley chapters of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. These chapters have worked diligently with MS activists to push forward this legislation to address the unmet needs of people with MS in New Jersey. Click here to read the full story.
