Update on Johanna's Law

Hi, Everyone--

The Gynecologic Cancer Education and Awareness Act of 2003, or Johanna's Law, was introduced into the House of Representatives on November 4th. You can follow the bill's progress through Congress by accessing www.congress.gov and either putting in the bill number, H.R. 3438, or doing a word search using "Johanna" or "gynecologic." The full text of the bill is online, and you can also see whether your representative was one of the 41 cosponsors of the bill.

Here are Senator Levin's opening remarks about the purpose of and need for the law at the time he introduced the bill:


I've been working on a detailed letter to my Congressman discussing issues relating to the bill for a few weeks now, but haven't completed it because of other time constraints, including illness and a major dental reconstruction project. However, now that the bill has been introduced into Congress, I will finish the letter and get it out in short very order.

Please let your federal legislators know how you feel about this important bill!

Should Say Congressman Levin

P.S. to my message above. It should read, "Congressman Levin" and not "Senator Levin." (There is also a Senator Levin, but he is in the Senate, and not the House of Representatives.

No matter how many times I read a message before posting it, I always seem to find a typo after posting! Drives me up a wall!!
