CASAA 3rd Call to Action re: FDA e-cig / vaping rules & regulations : Demand congress to inestigate FDA & CDC Actions
This is the Third Call to Action in CASAA's Action Plan.
This Third Call to Action represents consumers’ first “ask” of Congress, namely, a demand for oversight and investigative congressional hearings regarding CDC’s and FDA’s bad faith actions in connection with e-cigarettes. Many of CDC’s misrepresentations are set forth in CASAA’s testimony to the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee. If you want more information on how the FDA has misrepresented the science in connection with the proposed regulations, you should read the the errors and misstatements that are currently being cataloged in our AntiTHRLies blog.
We have created a campaign through CASAA's CQ Roll Call program, which will enable to you to directly contact your elected federal legislators (House and Senate). Click here for the CQ Roll Call Campaign for this Third Call to Action.
You will be asked for your name, mailing address, email address, and telephone number. All of this information is required by the program in order to find your elected representative and senator and to deliver the email to them. (CASAA does not share its email list or membership list, so the personally identifying information you enter will only be available to CASAA through our database and to the recipients of your email.)
The first and
last part of the email is not editable. It ensures that a consistent
message is sent to Congress by all CASAA members. The middle portion of
the email, however, is completely editable by you, and you should feel
free to make whatever kinds of edits you wish. We particularly
encourage you to edit the email so as to add a brief paragraph (perhaps
two to three sentences) sharing your personal story.
If you plan to substantially edit the email, you may wish to copy the text into a word processing program and make the edits there, then copy and paste back into the CQ Roll Call email. We have had two reports over the last several months that CQ Roll Call might "reset" when you keep the window open for a long time or when you open a separate browser window, causing you to lose any unique text you've added (and reverting back to the original).
Please take a moment to share this Call to Action with others.
