We are thrilled to share that the House of Representatives unanimously passed H.R. 1318, the Preventing Maternal Deaths Act, today. We are hearing that the Senate expects to take up and pass the bill soon — after which it would be sent to the President’s desk for signature into law. Below, please find AMCHP’s press release celebrating passage of H.R. 1318.
The House is also expected to pass S.3029 today to reauthorize the PREEMIE Act, which supports federal research and initiatives to address preterm birth. The PREEMIE Act already passed the Senate, which means it will soon head to the President for his signature into law.
