January, 2002 -- The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services is sending a model bill for state legislatures to pass that would give public health officials and governors sweeping new authority without oversight by the legislature or courts. Moreover, the proposal allows government authorities to ration and commandeer drugs and other items, including firearms and private property.

This bill would give the governor the power to declare himself dictator in case of a "public health emergency" -- which means whatever he says it does. Further, the governor could then delegate this authority to unelected political appointees in state and local public health offices.

The bill is so alarming that even state legislators are publicly opposing it, including the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC), the nation's largest bipartisan, individual membership organization of state legislators.

The proposed legislation, entitled the Model State Emergency Health Powers Act (MEHPA), is already under consideration in several states including Maryland, Massachusetts, Nevada, Minnesota, Illinois, and California, while many states will consider the measure during the 2002 legislative sessions.
Ø       Force you to take a vaccination or a medical treatment decided by the Governor  or be herded into a quarantine or isolation facility.
Ø       Seize any of your property that the government decides is necessary such as firearms, real estate, fuel, medical supplies, food, clothing,              communications devices, business property.
Ø       Destroy property alleged to be hazardous without compensation and without recourse.
Ø       Conscript you or your business into State service.
Ø       Impose rationing, price controls and quotas on any resources including food, water & fuel.

ð       SIGN THE PETITION. Urge President Bush to stop HHS from pushing this monstrous bill.
ð       CONTACT STATE OFFICIALS. Tell legislators and your governor. Call the Legislative Hotline.

Log on to www.aapsonline.org or call the AAPS Hotline at 800.419.4777 to sign the petition.
Continue to contact your legislators as well as Secretary of Health and Human Services Tommy Thompson at every stage of the process. We must stop this constitutional crisis now!  What the Patriot Act hasn't accomplished, the Medical Emergency Act just might.
