Dear [CONGRESSMAN / SENATOR / PRESIDENT] [NAME],
I wanted to give you some information on the Tally Bill that I feel is very important to the veteran community. Brian Tally is a Marine veteran who was almost killed at the hands of the VA. The VA was all ready to settle and even accepted full responsibility. Then they backed out, citing the FTCA. Given the doctor was a contractor for the VA, they denied all culpability, and told him to file with the state (California). By the time he received all this info, he was past the statute of limitations and left without recourse. I am including links to both the Facebook group and the Tally Team web page as well as attaching a press kit for your reference (there is far more information available there than I am including here).
I know you are bombarded with requests on a regular basis and that your time is limited, but I would really appreciate you taking a few minutes to review the bill and the links. Congressman Dave Brat has officially sponsored this bill. I am reaching out to you and asking your support for this legislation. More so, I believe your co-sponsorship of this legislation would give us the added support we need to fix the problems highlighted in the bill.
