The House Committee on Energy and Commerce Subcommittee on Health Thursday, May 14, reviewed and passed a draft of legislation known as the 21st Century Cures Initiative.
The full committee will consider this third draft of the proposed legislation in the near future.
The 21st Century Cures Initiative was created to more quickly bring medical treatments and cures to the American public without being overburdened by government regulations.
The American College of Surgeons (ACS) will submit a letter to the committee providing input on the bill. More information on the 21st Century Cures Initiative is on the Energy & Commerce Committee website at http:// energycommerce.house.gov/cures.
