President Signs Terry Legislation Into Law


WASHINGTON – Representative Lee Terry (R-NE) made the following statement after President Obama today signed into law the Poison Center Network Act (H.R. 3527):

“I’m pleased to hear this afternoon that President Obama signed into law my common sense legislation reauthorizing the funding of our nation’s poison control centers. These centers are served with trained professionals offering expert advice and peace of mind to nearly three million families each year at the moment the unthinkable happens and a loved one ingests a poisonous substance. My legislation will also provide much-needed cost savings by eliminating unnecessary trips to the emergency room.

“I’m pleased that both Democrats and Republicans came together in a bipartisan fashion to make this day a reality.”
