21st Century Cures Act sponsors issue statement
“We need a game-changer to fight disease, and we have it with 21st Century Cures,” they said. “It’s the most transformational bill to innovate our health care system since the National Cancer Act became law 45 years ago. This is truly a watershed moment for patients, their loved ones, medical professionals, researchers and scientists.”
The bill now moves to the U.S. Senate floor for a final vote.
“The momentum has never been stronger in this three-year effort to deliver safe treatments and more hope, and we look forward to a strong supporting vote,” Upton and DeGette said. “We are thrilled to have a resounding endorsement from the White House. It’s finally time for #CuresNow.”
