In recognition of the TSRPs outstanding contributions to the public, the MADD National Board passed a resolution supporting them in February 2006. You can view the official statement and all other policies at www.madd.org.
Thank you again for your support of this valuable program. If you have any questions, comments or concerns, or if we may be of any service to you, please do not hesitate to contact me at 202-974-2497.
