WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Brian Fitzpatrick (PA-08), the author of the Trickett Wendler, Frank Mongiello, Jordan McLinn, and Matthew Bellina Right to Try Act of 2018 [H.R. 5247], released the following statement Tuesday evening following the House’s vote:
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressmen Brian Fitzpatrick (PA-08) and Andy Biggs (AZ-05), along with the House Energy and Commerce Committee, announced this weekend that an updated Right to Try proposal will be considered by the House of Representatives on Tuesday. The bill, formally being introduced today, will improve access to experimental treatments for patients with terminal diseases or conditions.
Each year, millions of Americans are diagnosed with terminal illnesses. These people are fathers and mothers, sons and daughters, husbands and wives, grandpas and grandmas. More than anything else, these individuals hope to determine their own future.
One thing these people don’t have is time.
It is imperative that Congress pass the Right to Try Act immediately, allowing millions of Americans to have the freedom to fight for their health. Time is of the essence.
