Watch for House health action in September
House GOP leadership wants three committees to work out their differences on health care legislation over the August recess so that a bill could potentially come to the floor in September, sources say.
Why it matters: The move could advance significant health care legislation aimed at at least somewhat lower costs for drugs and medical visits, while drawing the ire of the PBM and hospital industries.
- The goal now is to merge those measures.
- The E&C and Education and Workforce measures were bipartisan, while the Ways and Means bill was GOP-only.
