Rep. Dykema Announces Local Hearings On
Utility Response to Tropical Storm Irene

BOSTON – The Department of Public Utilities (DPU) announced it will conduct a series of eight public meetings  across the state, including two in the MetroWest, to gather public comments on storm preparation and power restoration efforts by NSTAR and National Grid in the wake of Tropical Storm Irene, which made landfall on August 28, 2011.

National Grid
Tuesday, Nov. 1, 7 p.m.
Trottier Middle School
49 Parkerville Road
Southborough

NSTAR
Wednesday, Nov. 16, 7 p.m.
Walsh Middle School Auditorium
301 Brook Street
Framingham

The DPU will hold four meetings in each company’s service territory and will collect written public comment until 5 p.m. on November 23, 2011. The DPU is holding hearings in the hardest hit regions of each company’s service territory and encourages customers to attend any of the four meetings as well as submit written comments.  Written comments can be sent to Mark D. Marini:

Mark D. Marini, Secretary

Department of Public Utilities

One South Station, 5th Floor

Boston, MA 02110

The DPU is reviewing each company’s 30-day post-storm report, which was due on October 3. In response to customer and municipal concerns, the DPU also opened investigations on September 15 into National Grid and NSTAR’s storm response focusing on the companies’ efforts to restore electric power, including their communications with affected communities. The investigations will determine whether the companies complied with DPU regulations and fully implemented their Emergency Response Plans, which were last filed in May 2011.

The DPU’s investigations are focused on compliance with DPU’s performance standards for emergency preparation and restoration of service, including: (1) preparation for and management of the restoration efforts with respect to Tropical Storm Irene; (2) allocation of company resources in the affected communities; (3) communications with state, local municipal and public safety officials, and with the department; (4) dissemination of timely information to the public; and (5) identification of company practices requiring improvement, if any.

More details about the DPU’s investigation and the other hearing locations can be found on their website.

Ask Your Representative to Cosponsor the
Alzheimer's Breakthrough Act

Help us in the fight to accelerate critical Alzheimer's research. The Alzheimer's Breakthrough Act (H.R. 1897) would ensure that the federal government makes a commitment to finding treatments to prevent, cure, or slow the progression of Alzheimer's disease. We need your VOICE as we ask Congress to make research a priority. Please take two minutes and ask your Representative to join the 65 current cosponsors of the Act in the House of Representatives in supporting this important legislation.

SAVE THE DATE
Lend your VOICE in the fight against Alzheimer's disease and attend the 2012 Alzheimer's Association Advocacy Forum, April 23-25 in Washington, DC. To see highlights from the 2011 Advocacy Forum, please visit www.alz.org/forum.

National Alzheimer's Advisory Council Holds Inaugural Meeting
The Alzheimer's Advisory Council, created by the National Alzheimer's Project Act (NAPA), held its first meeting on September 27. Council members, including Alzheimer's Association President and CEO Harry Johns, heard presentations from agency officials about the federal government's current initiatives focused on Alzheimer's research, clinical care services, and long term care services and support. Advisory Council members also discussed how they will provide recommendations on the National Alzheimer's Plan to the government. A draft of the National Alzheimer's Plan is being prepared by the Department of Health and Human Services, and will be considered by the Council in early 2012.

New Congressional Scorecard Posted by the Alzheimer's Impact Movement
The Alzheimer's Impact Movement (AIM), strategic partner of the Alzheimer's Association, has posted a new Congressional Scorecard on AIM's website. AIM endorses and supports the federal priorities of the Alzheimer's Association, and the Congressional Scorecard is a helpful advocacy tool for tracking progress and support for the Alzheimer's Breakthrough Act and the HOPE for Alzheimer's Act. This new scorecard features an interactive map that makes it easy for you to look up whether your members of Congress are cosponsors of priority Alzheimer's legislation.

Medicare Annual Enrollment: October 15-December 7, 2011
This year, the annual open enrollment period for Medicare Part D prescription drug coverage begins October 15 and ends December 7. Please note that the enrollment closing date is earlier than in previous years. Plans are already sending materials to beneficiaries, and plan information for 2012 is also posted on www.medicare.gov. The Alzheimer's Association's annual chart of coverage of Alzheimer's drugs by national prescription drug plans is now available to help you in this process as well. If a certain drug is not on the plan formulary, the individual can file an "Exception" request with the plan and request that the drug be covered.

Update on Federal Government Funding
Congress continues to work on the federal funding bills for fiscal year 2012. While it's a tough economic climate, the House of Representatives has provided a $1 billion increase for the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in its draft bill. The Association will continue to advocate for and monitor the additional funding provided for agencies and programs important to our community, including funding for NIH and the Department of Defense Peer-Reviewed Alzheimer's Research Program.
