Help Us Pass the "Keep Antibiotics Effective Act of 2017" in Maryland

Antibiotic resistance is a major health crisis. Two million people each year in the U.S. contract antibiotic-resistant infections, at least 23,000 people die as a result and we lose $55 billion a year in excess hospital costs and lost productivity.

That's why NRDC has joined forces with a coalition of Maryland organizations — from environmental, public health and healthcare groups to labor and animal welfare interests — to pass the Keep Antibiotics Effective Act of 2017 in the state legislature. This important bill would eliminate the misuse of antibiotics in animal agriculture and position Maryland as a leader in the fight against antibiotic abuse.

Here's where you come in: We're setting up meetings between constituents and state legislators who we need to support this bill. Your voice is imperative in getting this important piece of legislation passed.

Please sign up here if you are interested in finding out more about attending a meeting with your state legislators later this month. Soon, an NRDC staff member will contact you about details on how you can get involved.*

* An NRDC staff member will be attending these meetings with you, so you do not need to be an expert on antibiotics or on lobbying to participate.
