California Life Sciences Association Praises Committee Passage of 21st Century Cures Act
Date:5/21/2015

San Diego, CA (PRWEB) May 21, 2015

Todd Gillenwater, Executive Vice President of Advocacy & External Relations at the California Life Sciences Association (CLSA), a non-profit representing more than 750 leading life sciences organizations, issued the following statement regarding today’s unanimous Energy & Commerce Committee passage of the 21st Century Cures Act:

“On behalf of the more than 750 life sciences organizations we represent, the California Life Sciences Association applauds Chairman Fred Upton (R-Mich.), Congresswoman Diana DeGette (D-Colo.) and members of the Committee for leading this thoughtful, bipartisan approach to spurring scientific discovery and biomedical innovation that will provide hope for patients here and around the world for many years to come.”

“The 21st Century Cures Act is not only visionary, but critical to ensuring that California and our nation remains the worldwide leader in life sciences research, investment and innovation. CLSA applauds the inclusion of meaningful funding increases and reforms that will boost biomedical research efforts at the National Institutes of Health (NIH), protect FDA user fees from sequestration and streamline and modernize numerous regulatory and delivery mechanisms.

“CLSA looks forward to continue working with Chairman Upton, Representative DeGette, bipartisan members of the Committee, House Leadership and California’s congressional delegation to see this importance piece of legislation signed into law.”
