Action Alert: Frist's Eli Lilly Vaccine Legislation

Bill Frist is up to his old tricks with the Eli Lilly vaccine legislation. Wampum Blog pleads for you to help.
Senator Bill Frist, with the help of Judd Gregg (R-NH), is resubmitting the Eli Lilly Thimerosal provison, with additional devastating changes to the Vaccine Injury Compensation Program and to the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee. Markup is scheduled for today. Frist thinks he may have the votes.
