National Media Campaign to Prevent Underage Drinking On April 4, 2001, Representatives Lucille Roybal-Allard (D-CA) and Frank Wolf (R-VA) introduced H.R. 1509, a bill to establish a "National Media Campaign to Prevent Underage Drinking."
Original co-sponsors include: Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), Zach Wamp (R-TN), Henry Waxman (D-CA), Connie Morella (R-MD), Nita Lowey (D-NY), and John Cooksey (R-LA).
H.R. 1509 has the support of the Center for Science in the Public Interest, American Medical Association (AMA), Advertising Council, Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD), National Partnership for a Drug-Free America, Consumer Federation of America, National Families in Action, Trauma Foundation, and the American Academy of Pediatrics, to name a few of the national groups. Many local and statewide groups also support this bill.
During the Easter/Passover recess, members of Congress will be coming home for the holidays and will be holding town meetings and community forums over the next 10 days. We encourage you to attend some of these meetings and ask about this bill, or if possible, set up a personal meeting with your representative to discuss the need for this national media campaign.
Major Points to make:

Additionally, please write members of Congress to make the above points. The address for your member of Congress is:
