Chairs Rodgers and Guthrie Announce Subcommittee Markup on 21 Legislative Proposals

Washington, D.C. — House Energy and Commerce Committee Chair Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA) and Subcommittee on Health Chair Brett Guthrie (R-KY) announced a subcommittee hearing on policies to improve patient access to care and support providers.
