Congress is currently taking its Memorial Day recess to visit with constituents at home. Before they left town, however, there was lots of activity in the Capitol. Bipartisan bills were introduced in both the House and Senate to extend funding for Family-to-Family Health Information Centers for an additional five years (through federal FY 2024). The House passed a health care bill intended to lower drug prices and roll-back some of the administration’s changes in ACA regulations. Key Senators issued a discussion draft of a wide-ranging bipartisan bill to address surprise medical bills and health care costs. The Senate passed a disaster-relief package, but it is stalled in the House.

VISIT YOUR MEMBERS OF CONGRESS: Congress (House and Senate) has a recess from May 28-31, meaning they will be at home in their districts/states to meet with constituents. To find out about events near you where you can see your elected officials and candidates, see the Town Hall Project.
