Repeal Status Update

MNA has been asked by the repeal bill sponsor to see if any compromise is possible on a law that would not create job loss. We are currently at the table with the Michigan Dietetic Association exploring that option. However the bill sponsor has said if nothing is agreed upon very soon, the repeal bill will begin its move. There is very likely to be a hearing on a Tuesday in mid to late October.

Please find resources at www.nutritionadvocacy.org/michigan for hearing information as it becomes available

Also there are three ways you can help right now:

1. Send an email in support of repeal to your own Representative  http://www.house.mi.gov/mhrpublic/  You can find a sample letter or talking points at www.nutritionadvocacy.org/michigan by scrolling down to where you see downloadable documents. The link to find your legislator is also there.

2.  If you have thank you letters from clients you have helped, and have permission to share those, please email to michigannutrition@gmail.com. Permission is important as these will become public record.

3. DONATE money to MNA. We appreciate the past contributions of MNA supporters toward the costs
of a lobbyist for the last several years. We have recently added a second lobbyist to do everything we can to be 
successful in our efforts. Seeing this through the entire legislative process at best will take several more months
and is not 
financially sustainable without your help now. Whether you've given in the past or never donated
please consider how this law will affect you if it is not repealed and consider making a one time or monthly
recurring donation 
by clicking on the Donate link in the left menu bar. Donations are through PayPal. Thank
you.
