LAST CALL: Join Us in Urging U.S. Airlines to Carry Opioid Reversal Drugs on Flights

November 22, 2019

There have been multiple reports of opioid overdoses occurring in the air, including reports over the summer of a passenger who died from an overdose while on a cross-country flight from Boston to Los Angeles. The reports stated that although those onboard
tried to administer care, they did not have access to naloxone, an opioid antagonist, that may have saved the passenger’s life.
In response to an initial letter in August, FAA Administrator Dickson recognized “the need to update emergency medical kits to include opioid antagonists” on airplanes and stated that “the FAA will seek to encourage the expeditious and voluntary
inclusion of opioid antagonists in the [medical] kits.” Many airlines, including American Airlines, Delta Air Lines, United Airlines, Alaska Airlines, and Frontier Airlines, have voluntarily agreed to stock naloxone on their planes.

CLOSING TODAY: Co-sign Letter to POTUS Objecting to Pardons of War Criminals

Please join me in writing to President Trump to object to his issuance of pardons to war criminals on November 15, 2019. The President’s use of the pardon power in the cases of First Lieutenant Clint Lorance, Major Matthew Golsteyn, and Edward Gallagher
flies in the face of American values by allowing servicemembers sworn to defend our Constitution get away with serious crimes.

Urge Trump to Follow Through On Flavor Ban Guidance

November 22, 2019

Please join me, the Congressional Caucus to End the Youth Vaping Epidemic, and elected officials in encouraging President Trump to remain committed to his original proposal to ban flavored e-cigarettes. Although this announcement was
made two months ago on September 11th, we write in urgency as multiple press reports have detailed the possibility of the President reversing his
decision on his pledge to remove all flavors from the market pending review by the FDA. Members of Congress, public health advocates, and medical professionals alike have been unified in their support for the removal of flavored e-cigarettes from the market,
and we must ensure that the President follows through on this promise.
