21st Century Cures Act (H.R. 6)

I am very pleased and proud to announce that by a vote of 344-77, the United States House of Representatives passed the 21st Century Cures Act (H.R. 6), which aims to accelerate the discovery, development and delivery of life-saving and life-improving therapies. The bill also would transform the quest for faster cures by modernizing and removing regulatory processes and barriers that often slow the translation of new discoveries into treatments for patients.

The APF has been very involved in the promotion of the passing of this bill.  We thank those of you who contacted your Congressmen in support of this legislation.
