The House Energy and Commerce Committee approved three health policy bills on January 22, 2013, versions of which were passed by the full House during the last Congress. Specifically, the panel voted to approve: H.R. 297, the Children’s Hospital Graduate Medical Education (GME) Support Reauthorization Act of 2013 (which provides support to children’s hospitals for pediatric medical residency programs); H.R. 225, the National Pediatric Research Network Act of 2013 (to allow the National Institutes of Health to fund pediatric research networks to conduct research on conditions and diseases affecting children); and H.R. 235, the Veteran Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) Support Act (which would provide funding to states with EMT shortages to streamline licensing requirements for military veteran EMTs).
