Wonderful news from Washington, D.C. today! Montana Senator Jon Tester decided to co-sponsor the School Access to Emergency Epinephrine Act. As you might recall, the bill was introduced in the Senate last November and in the House one month later, but so far only 26 Senators and 41 Representatives pledged their support.
If you haven't done so already, please consider writing Senator Baucus and Representative Rehberg and ask them to co-sponsor the bill. If you need a template letter, it is available here. It only takes a few minutes to customize it, print it, and mail it. After you mail or fax your letters, please send electronic copies to FAAN's D.C. lobbyist, Lynn Morrison. Her office will make sure that your letters are brought to the attention of senior Congressional staff.
Please do this in memory of Katelyn Carlson, Ammaria Johnson, and all the other children whose deaths could have been prevented if epinephrine had been available at their schools.
Update: Representative Denny Rehberg became a co-sponsor on May 8. Thank you, Mr. Rehberg!
