Banning BPA

Thanks to the Oregonian for printing my letter on the BPA-Free Baby Bill to the editor today! I'm proud to say that thanks to Rep. Ben Cannon, it has been resurrected for one more chance - if he can get 31 reps' signatures on the discharge petition by Wednesday, June 1, at 5pm, it will go to a fair floor vote in the House, instead of being killed by the conservatives on its committee.

 

If you also want this law, PLEASE call or email your Oregon House rep to ask him or her to support Rep. Cannon's discharge petition for SB 695 so it gets a fair floor vote in the House. If they are supporting it, that's awesome. It's a courageous move up against very strong opposition from the chemical industry. Deadline is Wednesday afternoon - thank you!!!
