Representatives Bill Foster (IL) and Mike Kelly (PA) introduced a bipartisan amendment this week that strikes section 510 from the Labor-HHS Education Appropriations which currently prohibits the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services from spending any federal dollars to promulgate or adopt a national patient identifier.
The amendment will likely come to the House floor for a vote June 12, and we need your help.
