I just sent online letters to Congressman Barton and some other committee members by using their home zip codes in place of my own. Their staffers may end up disregarding the letters when they see my address, but I thought it was worth a try. You can get the zip codes from the US Post Office site by plugging in the congressman's district office address, if you want to take the time to do this. This is what I have so far:
W.J. "Billy" Tauzin, Louisiana 70360-4802
Ralph M. Hall, Texas 75087-2508
Michael Bilirakis, Florida 33618-4404
Fred Upton, Michigan 49007-4877
Cliff Stearns, Florida 34471-9179
Paul E. Gillmor, Ohio 43512-2168
James C. Greenwood,
Pennsylvania 18901-4644
Christopher Cox, California 92660-2412
Nathan Deal, Georgia 30721-4468
Richard Burr, North Carolina 27104-4225
Ed Whitfield, Kentucky 42240-2017
Charlie Norwood, Georgia 30907-0331
Barbara Cubin, Wyoming 82601-1962
If someone else would like to pick the list up from here, please do so. I cannot spare anymore time.
In the alternative, we can place telephone calls to the E&C Committee members or fax letters to them, although I know this can run into long distance charges that many of us cannot afford.

RhondaRS,
Great work!
In the meantime, I'm pleased to report that I just found out that Rep. Tom Allen from Maine has signed on as a co-sponsor. We're up to 54!
Rep. Allen is ALSO a member of the Energy & Commerce Committee, so his decision is very timely, since the Committee will be reviewing the bill next week. Have been working on him for awhile now....thanks to anyone else here who contacted his office.
So, one less Committee member that anyone needs to contact (except to express thanks!)

All,
[b]Rec'd electronic notification that the House Energy & Commerce Committee has formally scheduled FALCPA for markup this THURSDAY!!![/b]
The schedule info is available on the Energy & Commerce website:
[url="http://energycommerce.house.gov/108/Markups/06242004markup1324.htm"]http://energycommerce.house.gov/108/Markups/06242004markup1324.htm[/url]
Make sure that you when you are soliciting support for the measure, that you also refer to the bill as S.741 (the Senate version of the bill).
You may recall that in the Senate, FALCPA was added as an amendment to another bill (S. 741 - the Minor Use & Minor Species Act [MUMS ACT]), and FALCPA became Title II of that act.
It now appears that when the SubCommittee on Health reviewed the legislation and brought it forward to the full Energy & Commerce Committee, that they brought forward S. 741, rather than HR 3684. You can confirm this here, by looking at the last Major Action
[url="http://thomas.loc.gov/cgi-bin/bdquery/z?d108:s.00741:"]http://thomas.loc.gov/cgi-bin/bdquery/z?d108:s.00741:[/url]
Only a few days left to influence Committee members before the vote....

Rhonda,
Thank you for that list!!
Unfortunately all my emails are either getting returned undeliverable or they will not read them if I am not in their district, such a road block!
I hope others have better luck than me.

This is a great milestone. In terms of next steps, a Committee Report needs to be written. Fortunately, there were no amendments made to the legislation, so getting a report written will not be as complex as it would otherwise
be.
Also found this info at Thomas: A measure or matter reported by a committee (except the Committee on Rules in the case of a resolution providing a rule, joint rule, or order of business) may NOT BE CONSIDERED in the House until the third calendar day (excluding
Saturdays, Sundays, and legal holidays unless the House is in session on those days) on which the report of that committee on that measure has been available to the Members of the House.
So, we need to see that Committee Report issued and made available to the full House before they can even consider taking a vote. In the Senate, it took them a good 2-3 months to issue the report, but my
belief is that this one should go faster...

N.B. - FAI is using old stats...how discouraging! Expect to see a press release from FAAN soon, using current stats...

Thanks to all who have made an effort to have your voice heard. We're into the home stretch!!!

I agree - it's very disappointing they used outdated stats! FAAN's updated this page with June 24th's happenings but it's not in a press release:
[url="http://www.foodallergy.org/Advocacy/labeling.html"]http://www.foodallergy.org/Advocacy/labeling.html[/url]
I sent the other press releases of June 24th to my paper - they haven't been interested in printing all the other one's I've sent but maybe if I'm persistent!
