E&C Announces Health Subcommittee Markup
Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman Frank Pallone, Jr. (D-NJ) and Health Subcommittee Chairwoman Anna G. Eshoo (D-CA) announced today that the Health Subcommittee will hold a markup on Wednesday, September 14, at 10:30 a.m. (EDT) in the John D. Dingell Room, 2123 of the Rayburn House Office Building.
“Last month the House passed and President Biden signed into law the Inflation Reduction Act that will lower health care and prescription drug costs for millions of Americans—and we’re not done yet,” Pallone and Eshoo said. “This week, we will consider five bills that continue our work of ensuring every American can get the affordable, high-quality care they deserve. All five of these bills will improve our nation’s overall health, and we look forward to marking them up this week.”
The Subcommittee will consider the following bills:
H.R. 3173, the “Improving Seniors’ Timely Access to Care Act of 2021,” which was introduced by Rep. Suzan DelBene (D-WA) and 91 other original cosponsors;
H.R. 3655, the “Vaccine Injury Compensation Modernization Act of 2021,” which was introduced by Reps. Lloyd Doggett (D-TX) and Fred Upton (R-MI);
H.R. 5141, the “Maximizing Outcomes through Better Investments in Lifesaving Equipment for (MOBILE) Health Care Act,” which was introduced by Reps. Susie Lee (D-NV), Richard Hudson (R-NC), Raul Ruiz (D-CA), and Jaime Herrera Beutler (R-WA);
H.R. 8163, the “Improving Trauma Systems and Emergency Care Act,” which was introduced by Rep. Tom O’Halleran (D-AZ); and
H.R. 6737, the “Flint Registry Reauthorization Act,” which was introduced by Rep. Daniel Kildee (D-MI) and 13 other original cosponsors.
