Since 1980, the Leadership Council of Aging Organizations (LCAO) has been the country’s preeminent coalition representing older Americans. Composed of 69 national nonprofit organizations, LCAO focuses on the well-being of America’s older population and is committed to representing their interests in the policy-making arena. LCAO serves as a source of information about issues affecting older persons and provides leadership and vision as America meets the challenges and opportunities presented by its aging society.
LCAO urges you to expeditiously bring H.J. Res. 38 to the House floor for a vote. This resolution, introduced by Ways and Means Social Security Subcommittee Chairman John B. Larson and Worker and Family Support Subcommittee Chairman Danny K. Davis, would disapprove the rule submitted by the Social Security Administration relating to hearings held by Administrative Appeals Judges of the Appeals Council.
