Get Involved Now!
What is Happening? Wisconsin is preparing to introduce the Consumer Choice and Wellness Act in the upcoming weeks. We are thrilled that a bill is coming that you can support! It is our long-awaited solution to the problems we deal with daily in Wisconsin concerning our rights to help one another using health modalities.
What will the Bill do? The bill will protect consumer access to complementary and alternative health care practitioners including herbalists, naturopaths, nutritional consultants, homeopaths, and many other natural health and complementary health practitioners. It will protect the right of practitioners to provide complementary and alternative health care services. It will protect the right of consumers to choose to utilize these safe non-invasive health care services.
What can you do?
- Contact your legislators and let them know you support protecting access to complementary and alternative health care services. Who represents you? Easily find your personal legislators by CLICKING HERE (enter your address in upper right-hand corner and click ‘search’ icon). Start building a relationship with them now so trust and comradery are established when you begin asking them for their yes vote on the upcoming bill.
- Join Wisconsin Health Freedom Coalition to keep updated by going to their website and sign up to get alerts about the upcoming bill. They will keep you updated on the progress of the bill (i.e., exciting legislative milestones such as bill introduction, which legislators sign on as co-sponsors, committee assignment(s), public hearing dates, floor votes, etc. and, hopefully, eventual passage into law).
- Read re-cap of 2017-2018 work on WI’s Consumer Choice and Wellness Act to familiarize yourself with the expected language and history of the upcoming bill. We’ll need your help to convince legislators there is broad Wisconsin support for the bill as it moves through the legislative process. Knowing what the bill does and does not do is a great place to start.
- Support the effort in Madison! Passing a bill into law is not an easy feat. We’re always looking for ways to connect more citizens to the local groups NHFA works alongside, in this case WIHFC. Please reach out with any questions or ideas you have to support the effort at a deeper level.
STAY TUNED!!! WE CAN DO THIS TOGETHER! A concerted effort will get this accomplished. 10 states have already done it and WI could be next!
