Washington, December 7, 2018
Washington, D.C. — Congressman Michael C. Burgess, M.D. (R-TX), Chairman of the Energy and Commerce Subcommittee on Health, released the following statement after the Senate advanced H.R. 315, the Improving Access to Maternity Care Act. Dr. Burgess introduced this legislation on January 5, 2017 and it passed unanimously in the House on January 9, 2017.
“As an OB/GYN who spent nearly three decades providing care to mothers and babies in North Texas, I am delighted that my bill to expand access to maternity care is headed to President Trump’s desk to become the law of the land. With yesterday’s Senate passage, we have come one step closer to delivering the quality, consistent maternity care that helps to ensure a safe and healthy pregnancy regardless of where a woman lives. I look forward to seeing President Trump sign this lifesaving bill into law as soon as possible.”
