Health Care Reform Update, July 2009
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.
