Federal Health Policy & Political Update: Implications for Trauma Care

TCAA hosted the second session of its federal advocacy webinar series on Wednesday, July 19, 2017.   Lobbyists from our team at Winning Strategies Washington presented on Federal Health Policy & Political Update: Implications for Trauma Care.  They provided the latest updates from Washington concerning the key health care issues under debate along with a status report and future predictions for the success of TCAA’s specific policy priorities.  Stay tuned for the live recording, and visit this page on our website to view previous webinar recordings.

 

Big Win for MISSION Zero Legislation

H.R. 880, was unanimously approved by the House Energy Commerce Health Subcommittee. Chairman of the Subcommittee, Rep. Michael Burgess (R-TX), praised the bill’s aim of strengthening the nation’s trauma system and allowing our military to maintain its combat readiness between periods of active engagement.  The bill is now with the full House Energy and Commerce Committee for a vote and will subsequently head to the House floor.  We will keep you posted as this bill moves through the process!
