Burton is a representative of the National Cancer Registrars Association. “Sarah and I had a productive discussion regarding funding for cancer registries in the upcoming budget debate,” Shimkus said. “Cancer registries, both at the state and federal level, provide vital data that fuels research efforts to find a cure for this awful disease.” Shimkus supported the 21st Century Cures Act, signed into law by President Obama last December, to authorize $6.3 billion in funding to speed up the discovery, development and delivery of new treatments and cures for a variety of diseases. That legislation included $1.8 billion specifically to bolster cancer research. ###

Shimkus Statement on Syria Missile Strike
WASHINGTON – Congressman John Shimkus (R, Illinois-15) released the following statement on yesterday’s Tomahawk missile strike on Syria’s Shayrat air base:  “In 2013 I cautioned President Obama about military intervention in Syria. I also questioned why we are always the ones to respond, and why the international community may come late, but never early or on time, to these situations.   “Russia should have enforced the agreement struck in 2013 to remove all chemical weapons from Syria.  After another attack on innocent civilians, it is clear this did not happen, and a war crime was committed. “I hope President Trump will seek legislative support for any possible future actions.”  ###
