David L. Bales, Chairman of Texans for Cures and Jack Frazee, the newest member of TFC’s Advisory Council and resident Right to Try expert headed to D.C.
TFC will continue protecting patients and responsible researchers from poorly written Right to Try legislation which can open the door for medical fraud and abuse by unsavory characters.
TFC’s success in Texas has fueled our desire to stop upcoming legislation in the United States Congress. There exists a potential to pass poor legislation that will re-create here in the US, the atmosphere that currently exists in other countries.
Clinics with no track records, with low percentages of success rates, taking money from desperate families for unproven therapies.
We begin our advocacy and education at 9 AM EST tomorrow when we meet with Representative Lloyd Doggett, followed by a meeting with Senator Chuck Schumer and then the Senate’s author, Ron Johnson.
We feel the same arguments we recently made in Texas should serve us well with these members.
85th Texas Legislative Session – Protecting Patients and Responsible Research!
Mary Scala, Texans For Cures – June 14 2017
Texans for Cures, with incredible support from many of you, helped quash HB 3236 (patient pay) and HB 661 (patient access to unproven biological drugs and devices). And, with the leadership of Senators Schwertner, Taylor, and Watson, and State Rep. Garnet Coleman, added patient protections which greatly improved HB 810. As originally written, this bill would have made Texas the true, “Wild West” and created a situation where unscrupulous stem cell operators could thrive.
Stay tuned and wish us well! This will be another battle and we intend to win!
Jack Frazee and David Bales
