Teleconference for Media -- Crucial AIDS Bill Stalled in Senate
           


<p>WASHINGTON, DC--(Marketwire - June 17, 2008) - <p>
WHAT: Crucial AIDS legislation has stalled in the Senate, despite broad
bipartisan backing. The bill was originally authored in the House by the
late Rep. Tom Lantos, who President Bush will honor with the Presidential
Medal of Freedom on June 19.
<p>
To honor Lantos, it is crucial that the bill pass the Congress by June 27,
as the President requested.  This would give the US more leverage at next
month's G8 Summit to secure more contributions from other G8 nations. Our
speakers will explain why, from their perspectives, the Lantos-Hyde US
Global AIDS Leadership Act of 2008 is so crucial. Journalists will have the
chance to ask questions of the speakers.
