WASHINGTON, DC — Today, House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Paul Ryan (R-WI) released the following statement upon passage of H.R. 6, the 21st Century Cures Act.
“The 21st century has brought a revolution in medicine. Yet the regulatory structure to take advantage of these discoveries is lagging behind. This legislation makes crucial reforms in the discovery, development, and delivery of new treatments that will keep America on the cutting edge of medical innovation. It’s time to update and streamline this complex approval process so more people can get access to life-changing treatments.”
