Reps. Diana DeGette, a Democrat, and Fred Upton, a Republican, are working together to create new legislation that would expand on the 21st Century Cures Act, according to a Regulatory Focus report.
The legislators put out a call for input on how to address a number of issues and challenges for the new package.
“We are so proud of what the first effort of 21st Century Cures has been able to achieve in such a short amount of time, but one thing we have heard from listening to folks across the nation is that we need to do more to promote access to these life-saving cures,” DeGette and Upton said. “There are still too many patients without a treatment, and we need to do everything we can to help them now.”
