WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Jim Matheson’s (D-UT 2nd) Spokesperson, Alyson Heyrend announced today on K-TALK AM 630 (KTKK) radio that he does not support H.R. 4282, The Health Freedom Protection Act, because it would “damage the image of the FDA.”
The announcement came after Jonathan Emord, author of the bill, and talk show host, Dr. Jack Stockwell called Matheson’s office during Stockwell’s morning talk show. The bill is supported by Congressman Rob Bishop and Congressman Chris Cannon.
The Coalition to End FDA and FTC Censorship was founded in 2005 by Jonathan Emord, author of H.R. 4282, The Health Freedom Protection Act, in response to FDA censorship of nutrient-disease treatment information. The Coalition consists of 15 members of Congress, 99 dietary supplement companies, public interest groups and supplement distributors. Its mission is to see H.R. 4282 passed in Congress.
Introduced November 9, 2005, the bill is pending before the House Energy and Commerce Committee.
