PRESS RELEASE LEGISLATION NEEDING YOUR ACTION
February 24, 2009
HAWAII & NEW MEXICO ARE LEADING THE WAY
GET YOUR STATE SENATORS
TO SPONSOR A BILL TO BAN ASPARTAME
NHF member, Dr. Betty Martini, Founder of Mission Impossible International, and Stephen Fox, Editor of the New Mexico Sun News, are currently working with people in the States of New York, Pennsylvania, Florida, and Illinois to accomplish just this. The bill is now written and Dr. Martini and Stephen Fox have written the resolution. Stephen Fox wrote the important legislation to ban aspartame for both the Hawaii and New Mexico Senate.
In Stephen's words, this legislation was "overwhelmed by corporate lobbyists (eviscerated, might be the better word....), which led to a Hawaii Senate Concurrent Resolution 191, which genteelly but firmly asked the FDA to rescind the approval for aspartame, and gave about 40 reasons to do so. It can be read at the Hawaiian Legislature's website, as SCR 191. This resolution will be sponsored again in 2009 by Senator Suzanne Chun-Oakland in Hawaii, and by New Mexico Senator Gerald Ortiz y Pino. The corporate lobbyists will be out in droves and out for blood, this time . . . ."
