I utilize complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) for my
health care needs and I live in your district.
I am writing/calling today to ask for your support of SB577. This bill,
authored by Senator Burton, will come before the Senate Business and
Professions Committee on January 14, 2002.
California needs SB577. A majority of Californians now use CAM. But
because of the overly broad scope of the current Medical Practice Act,
almost every kind of CAM activity in California is technically illegal.
SB577 simply narrows the scope of the Medical Practice Act so that
inherently unharmful CAM practices can be allowed. With SB577,
the countless CAM consumers and practitioners in California will no longer
have to live under a cloud of technical illegality.
Please vote for SB577 in January.
