Update on MA Lyme insurance bill–prepare for override?
From the Massachusetts Lyme Legislative Task Force:
It is critical that we keep the pressure on Governor Baker to sign H. 4491, the Lyme treatment coverage bill! You’re doing great so far, but it’s important to continue.
If Governor Baker should veto the bill, the legislature is preparing to override it. We need to be sure that our legislators will not be dissuaded by our opponents and their expensive lobbyists! That’s why we need to keep calling and writing our own legislators as well.Call the Governor at 617.725.4005 or use his online form at http://www.mass.gov/governor/constituent-services/contact-governor-office/ (scroll to the bottom) — and ask him to sign H.4491, the Lyme treatment coverage bill..You can also contact your own Representative and Senator and thank them for their past support (they voted TWICE to pass the bill AND voted to reject the Governor’s changes!) Ask them to continue to support the bill, in the event that they need to override a veto by the Governor...Regards,
