Support FY2020 Funding For HIV/AIDS

Please join us in encouraging the Subcommittee on State, Foreign Operations, and Related Programs to support the research and development of an HIV/AIDS vaccine in its FY2020 Report. Now in its fourth decade, the HIV/AIDS pandemic has claimed 35 million
lives. Nearly 37 million people currently live with HIV, and almost 2 million become newly infected every year. The United States continues to lead the global effort to address this pandemic through treatment efforts like the President’s Emergency Plan for
AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) and the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis, and Malaria. As we work to maintain our commitments to PEPFAR and the Global Fund, we must also ensure that investments in vaccine research and development of continue. No pandemic infectious
disease in history has ever been effectively eradicated without the aid of a vaccine.

Prevent Unauthorized Military Action in Venezuela

We have all watched in horror as the Maduro regime has destroyed Venezuela’s economy, starved its people, and engaged in widespread corruption and repression. We all want a better future for the people of Venezuela, and we believe in the right of the Venezuelan
people to democratically determine that future. However, we are concerned by recent statements by American officials that U.S. military intervention is an option in Venezuela. The Administration currently does not have authorization to use military force in
Venezuela, and it would be illegal under U.S. law and inappropriate to attempt a military intervention in Venezuela without Congressional authorization.

Prevent Unauthorized Military Action in Venezuela

We have all watched in horror as the Maduro regime has destroyed Venezuela’s economy, starved its people, and engaged in widespread corruption and repression. We all want a better future for the people of Venezuela. However, like many of you, I am concerned
by reports that the Trump Administration is considering a military option in Venezuela. The Administration does not have authorization to use military force in Venezuela, and it would be illegal under U.S. law, inappropriate, and foolhardy to attempt a military
intervention to resolve the crisis there. The American people do not want another U.S. military intervention overseas.
