21st Century Cures Act

Posted on 30th November 2016 at 08:29

Measures backed by Third District Congresswoman Jaime Herrera Beutler are being included in a larger medical innovation and mental health reform package that’s moving through Congress. Beutler announced yesterday that her “Safe Medications for Moms and Babies Act” is being included in a package called the “21st Century Cures Act.” Co-sponsored by Democrat Kathy Castor of Florida, the Safe Medications Act will help to identify research gaps regarding pregnant and lactating women who take prescription medication, along with detailing ways to promote safer meds for those women to use. Beutler says that the 21st Century Cares Act should get action by the full Congress, and should be signed into law by the end of the year.
