NEWS: New Yorkers, help Gov. Cuomo make up his mind about Lyme bill
Lyme doctor protection legislation in New York was passed by the legislature last June and still awaits Governor Cuomo’s signature to become law.
New York State residents, please send your email to the Governor today: http://www.Cuomo123.com/
Use the sample email to contact all your New York State friends and family as well.
One contributor at the New York Voices of Lyme website emailed 50 of her New York friends, 15 of which emailed back to her that they had sent an email to Cuomo!
Background: Cuomo is being advised to ask that the wording of the Lyme bill be changed before he signs it. The governor’s office will contact the two sponsors to request a meeting to negotiate a “chapter amendment” to the bill. The sponsors are the NYS legislators who wrote the bill, which in this case, are NYS Assemblywoman Didi Barrett and NYS Senator Kemp Hannon. They would have to agree to the changes before Cuomo signs the bill. Once this is negotiated and agreed upon, the bill will be signed and when the legislature starts its new session in January, the first order of business is to pass all of the chapter amendments.
