This week the Senate, Health, Education, Labor and Pensions (HELP) Committee
approved its draft Health Care Reform measure, and the Finance Committee
is expected to begin consideration next week.
In the House, the Education and Labor Committee approved its section of
the bill (HR 3200) after a very long session lasting through the night
on Thursday. The Ways and Means Committee also finished action on its
portion of the legislation early Friday, while the Energy and Commerce
Committee is expected to continue its proceedings on Monday.
BIAA will continue to monitor the situation closely as the House is hoping
to send their bill to the floor before the August recess.
