On August 27, 2009, an MRA volunteer had a positive meeting with U.S. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid's office about the Physician Payments Sunshine Act.

Lisabeth Clawson-Couturier (Las Vegas Field & Focus) (pictured at left) met with the Majority Leader's chief healthcare aide, Kate Leone (pictured at right), in his district office in Las Vegas to educate her on research with healthcare professionals, and the need to exempt market research incentives from the legislation.
