On the Hill: Committees Consider Health Care Bills

Congressional consideration of a COVID-19 aid package remains stalled this week as House and Senate lawmakers work to finalize a roughly $40 billion aid package for Ukraine.

House Energy and Commerce Subcommittee on Health Work

On May 11, the House Committee on Energy and Commerce Subcommittee on Health held a markup of six legislative proposals, including H.R. 7667, the “Food and Drug Amendments of 2022”; and H.R. 7666, the “Restoring Hope for Mental Health and Well-Being Act of 2022.” These bills would reauthorize Food and Drug Administration (FDA) user fee programs, allow for program improvements for the FDA at-large, and reauthorize programs of the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration and Health Resources and Services Administration. The bills passed out of subcommittee with bipartisan support and now move to the full committee for further consideration.

Congressional Schedule

The House and Senate are in session this week. On Wednesday, May 18, the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions will hold a hearing on cybersecurity in the health and education sectors.

On Thursday, May 19, the Senate Committee on Aging will hold a hearing titled, “Mental Health Care for Older Adults: Raising Awareness, Addressing Stigma, and Providing Support.”
