Rep. Lipinski Supports Life-Saving 21st Century Cures Act

Congressman Dan Lipinski (IL-3) was joined by colleagues from both sides of the aisle today in passing the 21st Century Cures Act.  The bill would boost funding for biomedical research, and streamline and update the approval process for medical innovations, improving the quality of life for many Americans.

“I cosponsored this legislation because it will help speed the development and delivery of life-saving cures,” said Rep. Lipinski.  “It provides a critical infusion of resources for medical research, as I have long advocated for.  It will also speed up the process by which medications and medical devices are approved in order to get new treatments to patients faster.  While this bill is not perfect, I am glad the House could come together to get legislation passed that will improve the lives of so many people.”

The bill now moves on to the Senate.
