"Today the House of Representatives overwhelmingly passed 21st Century Cures, the bipartisan bill that I led with Congressman Fred Upton (R-MI), that will dramatically improve biomedical research in America. On the House floor, I urged my colleagues on both sides of the aisle to seize on this once-in-a-generation opportunity to tackle our present and future public health challenges – and they did, by a vote of 392 to 26. I’m humbled and extremely pleased that we are one big step closer to saving millions of lives. The bill now goes to the Senate for a vote."
