President's Message

Greetings from Dr. Ken May!

Help Support Bill to make VMLRP Awards Tax Exempt

In 2017 Iowa leads the nation in awards in the USDA’s Veterinary Medicine Loan Repayment Program (VMLRP). The AVMA is pushing for the passage of the VMLRP Enhancement Act (H.R. 1268 / S. 487) which would exempt VMLRP awards from the current 39% withholding taxes.

The AVMA released this brief radio spot in Iowa featuring AVMA president Dr. Mike Topper in support of the VMLRP Enhancement Act. Please contact Iowa Senators Grassley and Ernst and Reps Blum and King and encourage them to support the VMLRP Enhancement Act (H.R. 1268 / S. 487). The AVMA has an online form that you can complete and it will be sent to your legislators.
