Tonight, May 30, 2019 there will be news coverage of the 5 proposed Lyme bills in Wisconsin.
- The 6:00pm newscast is Channel 3 (3000). For me this is actually channel 603. Make sure and find out what channel it is for you in your location.
- The 9:00pm newscast is on Fox47, which may be an abbreviated story. For me this is channel 617. Also check to determine the station in your location.
I will post the link to this story as soon as it’s available.
I’m including the letter with concerns I sent to each of the sponsors of the proposed bills Letter to Wisconsin Lyme Bill Sponsors
I encourage all Wisconsin residents to let let your voices be heard about this.
For the actual proposed bills: https://madisonarealymesupportgroup.files.wordpress.com/2019/05/time-to-bite-back-against-lyme-disease-05-23-19.pdf
The bill of particular concern in #5 in that it: “Establishes a sixteen-member Tick-Borne Disease Study Committee to create a report for the legislature on consensus-based recommendations for policy changes on awareness, prevention, surveillance, diagnosis, reporting, and treatment of Lyme Disease.”
As you can read from my letter above, nothing about Lyme/MSIDS is agreed upon except the fact early detection and treatment is imperative. If this 16 member committee is only filled with CDC/IDSA believers, patients and the doctors who dare to treat them are doomed as it will be business as usual. Chronically infected patients need representation by qualified ILADS trained practitioners who understand the complexity of diagnosis, testing, and treatment.
