t care and improved safety measures."

ASRT launched its efforts in 1998 when it committed to advocating for legislation to amend the voluntary Consumer-Patient Radiation Health and Safety Act of 1981 to require technical personnel performing medical imaging and radiation therapy procedures to meet mandatory federal education and certification standards.

The CARE bill also is backed by several national organizations including the International Fraternal Order of Eagles, an 850,000-member organization that focuses its efforts on fundraising and supporting causes that help make communities healthier, happier and more prosperous.

"There is a lot of momentum behind the CARE bill right now with the combined efforts of the ASRT, the Alliance, national organizations and patients demanding top-notch health care," said Temme. "We are energized by the support and will continue to push for the bill's passage."
