For anyone who is interested (and it should be all of you guys on this forum), there is a bill in Congress called the HR 3236, the Patient and Physician Safety and Protection Act. It will look out for us when we are residents, ie. no working 36-hour shifts or limiting to 100/wk work hours. New York State already has this law, but we are trying to make it nationwide. Visit the AMSA website for more information, <a href="http://www.amsa.org/." target="_blank">http://www.amsa.org/.</a> Thanks guys!! Have a happy New Year!! PS - People have told me that handwriting my letters have more of an impact!
