I checked the schedule for votes on the Suspension Calendar at the House Majority Whips office website just now and HR 2900 isn't on it, so I called the Whips office, and the vote on HR 2900 will be held tomorrow, Wednesday, anytime after 10 am. The House starts its legislative business at 10 AM tomorrow, and they allow 40 minutes of debate, but no amendments on bills being voted on under Suspension of the Rules. They have to get a 2/3rds vote to pass these bills.
As discussed previously, the Senate version of this bill (S.1082) has already passed, and unless we can get an amendment into this bill, the FDA will be able to attack safe dietary supplements at will using the Critical Path initiative as a weapon.

KEEP THE PRESSURE ON THROUGH WEDNESDAY SINCE WE DON'T KNOW WHAT TIME THE VOTE WILL BE
CALLS TO MAKE AND WHAT TO SAY:
1. We need to flood the office of Nancy Pelosi
with phone calls, urging her to allow debate and amendments on HR
2900 (and if its not removed from the suspension calendar urge
Pelosi, and all other congressmen to vote NO on this
bill! (If they ask if you're a constituent, tell them you're an
American citizen, she's the speaker of the House, you're angry and
you have input you need to make. Do the same with the others in the House
leadership if you're not a constituent, because they've been
arrogantly hanging up on people.
You may call her office at (202) 225-4965 or email her at: AmericanVoices@mail.house.gov
You will be transferred to voice mail where you can leave a message. Urge Rep. Pelosi to allow debate and amendments on HR 2900 by removing it from the Suspension Calendar. This will allow the bill to be brought up under a regular order, which will give Congressman Ron Paul the opportunity to offer amendments that will help support health freedom (among other things).
If you want to live in a country where you retain free access to dietary supplements, please take action now to help move HR 2900 into a status allowing debate and amendments. You must call today, tonight or Wednesday morning.
You may also contact Reps. Hoyer, Bonner, and Blunt by calling them through the Capital Switchboard: 202-225-3121
Urge them to support the same thing. Please also contact your own congressperson and urge them to support open debate and amendments on HR 2900. Tell them that Congressman Paul is being blocked from proposing an amendment to this bill that dietary supplement consumers need. Tell them the amendment was written by attorney Jonathan Emord who has done more to defend the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act than any attorney in the country and that you will be enraged if this bill is pushed through under suspension without any amendments being allowed. If its not removed from the Suspension Calendar, you want them to vote NO on it!!!
This action is supported by many leaders and groups in the health freedom movement, even those that don't normally agree with each other. It is easy to see that HR 2900 stands as a serious threat to health freedom, and we cannot afford to miss this opportunity to introduce meaningful amendments to the legislation.
