The federal Lyme bill - S. 1503 - sponsored by Senator Blumenthal, is stuck in the Senate Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions (HELP) Committee, with only a few days left to "unstick" it.

At this point, our best shot is to get the provisions of this bill put into a bigger health bill the Senate is working on, by adding our language as an amendment.

The key person for making that happen is the committee chair, Sen. Lamar Alexander, of Tennessee.

We're asking you to phone your OWN senators, requesting them to ask Sen. Alexander to add our language as an amendment to this bill.

There's still time. We want the Senate to include the Lyme bill's language as an amendment to any of their Medical Innovation bills.
