Marchant Statement on Final Passage of Cures Legislation

WASHINGTON, DC – December 1, 2016: U.S. Congressman Kenny Marchant (TX-24) issued this statement following the House’s passage of the 21st Century Cures legislation.

“The Cures legislation modernizes medical research in this country,” said Marchant. “The groundwork laid by this bill is set to jumpstart multiple medical breakthroughs, helping Americans suffering from incurable diseases. Cures provides regulatory relief for our doctors and hospitals and allows America’s most vulnerable patients access the treatment they need easier and quicker. As the House looks toward repealing and replacing Obamacare, we should continue passing bills like H.R. 34, which expand access to affordable, quality health care.”
