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:

“Tonight, a minority of the House of Representatives blocked the 2/3 vote necessary to pass Right to Try via suspension. Those facing a terminal diagnosis and fighting for their Right to Try won’t give up, and neither can we. This fight resumes first thing tomorrow morning as we send this matter to the Rules Committee and will work to bring Right to Try back to the floor immediately for a simple majority vote, which as was indicated tonight, has the bipartisan majority of votes to pass.”
