From Washington:
We wanted to pass on some very important information we received today regarding a proposed food allergy bill. As you know, protecting our children in school is one of the most difficult tasks we have as parents. In October 2005, FAAN members led a large campaign to rally support for HR 4063, The Food Allergy and Anaphylaxis Management Act of 2005 (see below) . This bill is the first step in accomplishing safety for our children in their school. This is your opportunity as a parent to make a difference and make your voices heard. Please read the information below and call or write. Representative Joe Barton as soon as possible. A sample letter is attached and specific contact info is listed below the bill. Thank you.

Have sent a letter. HR 4063 is sitting since May 2006, let's not let it die in the committee and make sure we write our representatives. This is too important as those of us with school children find out, whether it's Epipens being locked up, or whatever the issue with the schools are, lets work to get this LAW!
Edited to say WE HAVE A VOICE, let it be heard for those with life-threatening food allergies!
