Following the Labor Day weekend, House Republicans hit the ground running as we returned to Washington and immediately got to work on a full “Better Way” agenda addressing a wide variety of issues. We are continuing our work in the Energy and Commerce Committee on legislation to improve the economy, our healthcare system and energy policy. Visit the Energy & Commerce website for information about specific legislation, scheduled hearings and votes.
This week, I introduced legislation to provide protection and clarity to healthcare policyholders. Below you will find information about how my bill, H.R. 5960, The Consumer Healthcare Insurance Transparency Act of 2016, will require the Centers For Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) to report the following year’s premium rate increases by November 1st of each year in order to better inform, create more transparency and educate consumers on potential annual premium increases in order to make better decisions for their families and businesses.
On Friday, I joined my House colleagues on the steps of the Capitol to remember September 11. As we mark this 15th Anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, we must remain vigilant as we continue to face the evils of terrorism both at home and abroad. I hope that you will join me today in remembering those who died on September 11, those they left behind, and those who fight in our armed forces to keep us safe.
