PLEASE, PLEASE, PAY ATTENTION TO THIS AND ACT ON IT TODAY – IT’S FOR YOUR OWN GOOD!
AN URGENT MESSAGE FROM NYCPS & PSSNY!
On Friday, September 23, the New York Times published an editorial entitled “Mom-and-Pop Pharmacy Bill”, urging Governor Cuomo to veto “AMMO”, our anti-mandatory pharmacy mail order bill. In the editorial, the Times said that “…there is no good reason for the state to intervene on behalf of neighborhood pharmacies“.
In these severe economic times, small businesses are more important than ever.
Please call your Assembly & Senate members today, and ask them to call Governor Cuomo in support of anti-mandatory mail order legislation A.5502 (Heastie) / S.3510 (Maziarz).
Here is what you should say to your state legislator:
“Thank you for your vote in favor of the anti-mandatory pharmacy mail order bill. It will go to the Governor within a few days. Please call Governor Cuomo and urge him to sign A.5502/S.3510 into law. Tell Governor Cuomo that this bill is important because it gives consumers choice about where to buy their prescription drugs, and it is designed to come at no additional cost to consumers, employers and health plans. Tell Governor Cuomo that this bill is vital for keeping small, locally-owned pharmacies in your community. Thank you.”
The easiest way to get your legislator’s phone number is to call NYS Senate Public Information at 1.518.455.3216 or NYS Assembly Public Information at 1.518.455.4218.
