Message From NatCap Lyme About Veto

Governor McDonnell needs to hear from you ASAP

Having lost its attempt to defeat the Lyme Patient's Information Bill in the House & Senate.

The Medical Society of Virginia is marshaling its doctors to seek a VETO!

Here's their message to their members:

Here's what it says:

On Tuesday of this week, in a 56-40 vote that defied party and regional lines, the House of Delegates agreed to the Senate’s version of the Lyme disease testing notification bill. As a result, both chambers agreed that physicians should be mandated to provide a specific written notice to patients tested for Lyme disease. The bill now heads to Gov. Bob McDonnell’s desk for his consideration. MSV will urge Gov. McDonnell to veto the bill. Look for a grassroots action alert in the coming days to weigh-in with Gov. McDonnell.

We have all fought too hard and too long to let this happen.
