Health Groups Urge Senators to Support On-line Access

The Alliance for Taxpayer Access (ATA) has issued a press release about letters sent from thirty-nine patient, health, and consumer organizations to Senators Lieberman, Cornyn, and Collins in support of the Federal Research Public Access Act (FRPAA). "The Public Access Act would require that most taxpayer funded scientific papers be made available for free online within six months of initial publication. The groups stress the particular importance of greater access to published medical research, which would help scientists speed the development of new treatments and cures."

Copies of the letters and signers are available here:
