—House Republicans easily passed a controversial bill aimed at helping some dying patients get new access to experimental therapies Wednesday, resurrecting legislation that suffered a major setback just a week ago.
Passage of the bill, on a largely party-line vote of 267-149, is a step forward for the”right-to-try” movement, after House Republicans failed to pass the legislation last Tuesday. Then, they had hoped to rely on an easier, quicker process typically reserved for noncontroversial bills, which requires a two-thirds vote. That day, the bill actually got more support than Wednesday, with a vote of 259-140.
It’s not clear what’s next for the legislation, which has been a priority for President Trump and Vice President Mike Pence. The Senate unanimously passed a broader right-to-try bill last fall, but did so largely to satisfy the demands of the bill’s sponsor, Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) as he held up another priority law. A single senator could similarly choose to block or hold up consideration of the now House-passed bill. —
