“With its Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) in the Federal Register on Aug. 15, 2016,
the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has moved to dramatically expand the power of the U.S. government over the lives of the American people.”
~ National Vaccine Information Center, September 27, 2016.
The CDC put out a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) for Control of Communicable Disease (Docket #: CDC 2016 0068) with comments due by midnight EDT, October 14, 2016. A Voice for Choice Advocacy strongly opposes the CDC’s proposed rules and seeks for the CDC to withdraw the NPRM for Control of Communicable Disease. The NPRM attempts to increase police power over citizens in time of public health emergencies. Through the extensive laws currently in place the CDC already has broad rulemaking authority to prevent the introduction, transmission, and spread of communicable diseases in interstate and foreign countries into the U.S., and its broad powers to apprehend persons moving across interstate borders and entering the U.S. from international locations regarding a certain and specific number of communicable diseases. Therefore these proposed rules would be an overreaching and dangerous threat to personal liberties and the health of the people of the USA.

- Call and email YOUR Congress member (find contact info at http://www.house.gov/representatives/find/) and ask them to stop the CDC’s proposal from being enacted.

Congress, through the Congressional Review Act (CRA) (5 U.S.C. Chapter 8), may review and choose to reject new regulations issued by Federal agencies. The CRA requires Federal agencies to submit all new final rules to both the House and Senate. After submission, Congress may begin a process to reconsider and vote to overturn the rule. Most legislators are probably not even aware of the proposed regulation.
