CASSIDY SUPPORTS OPTOMETRY
Good news for Louisiana’s eye care patients! Louisiana US Senator, Bill Cassidy, MD, has agreed to co-sponsor Senate Bill 4613, referred to as the Contact Lens Rule Modernization Act. Senate Bill 4613 is an Optometry sponsored bill to correct the onerous parts of the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) rules on contact lens prescription release with the use of robocalls.
As a physician, Senator Cassidy’s sponsorship is especially important for passage of this bill, designed to protect Optometrists’ patients. Senator Cassidy’s collaboration on Senate Bill 4613 will significantly help gain the support of other US Senators.
Through his action of co-sponsoring the bill, Senator Cassidy has demonstrated that he is, clearly, a friend of optometry and the patients they serve. Senator Cassidy is seeking re-election on November 3, 2020.
