I thought this information was posted but can't find it so I'm starting another thread. FAAN has a page about how and what to write your congressperson about this bill.

As with almost all legislation it's not perfect but it [b]is[/b] a start:
[b]H.R. 4063, The Food Allergy and Anaphylaxis Management Act of 2005[/b] calls on the federal government to develop a model policy, to be used on a voluntary basis, for managing the risk of food allergy and anaphylaxis in schools. The national policy would then be made available to local educational agencies (such as local school boards) and other interested individuals (i.e., school principals, school nurses, teachers, etc.). H.R. 4063 was introduced by Rep. Nita Lowey (D-NY) on October 17, 2005, during FAAN's Kids' Congress.
