North Carolina 2009 Update

The Consumer Health Freedom Act , HB 842, was reintroduced into the 2009 North Carolina legislature and was scheduled for it’s first hearing April 30th, but it was taken off the schedule to give more time to negotiate agreed upon language. The bill was “developed over years of work by notable health freedom advocates, in conjunction with a year long “legislative study” by a “Legislative Study Committee.” The study committee held a series of three public hearings in major NC cities (Raleigh, Asheville, New Bern) where more than four-hundred citizens expressed support for health freedom.” Taking the lead in moving the bill and gathering support from new sources for their bill is Citizens for Health Care Freedom, a long standing reputable freedom group in North Carolina. Sunshine Health Freedom coordinator, and Citizens for Health Care Freedom are working on the effort. Other supporting organizations are North Carolina’s Certified Natural Health Practitioners (CNHP), NHFA, Coalition for Natural Health (CNH), and Sunshine Health Freedom Foundation (SHFF) State Coordinator. Activists are also keeping an eye on the language of licensing bills that may negatively impact health freedom.
