Now is the time to secure cosponsors for the Senate version. We are thankful for the leadership of Senator Blumenthal (D-CT), Congressman Tim Ryan (D-OH), and Congressman Tom Cole (R-OK), for their support of this important legislation that will make it easier and safer for individuals with celiac disease or gluten sensitivity to make informed purchases of needed medications.
