Pelosi Statement on Energy and Commerce Committee Passage of Health Insurance Reform Legislation

WASHINGTON, July 31 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Speaker Nancy Pelosi issued the following statement tonight on the vote by the House Energy and Commerce Committee to pass the America's Affordable Health Choices Act, the third House committee to pass the bill this month. The House Ways and Means Committee and Education and Labor Committee approved the bill earlier this month:

"For more than 60 years, we have tried as a nation to make quality, affordable health insurance coverage available to all Americans. Tonight's vote marks the next step in the most successful effort in our history.

"All three House committees with jurisdiction over health care have now passed health insurance reform legislation. The reforms now advancing to a vote in the full House of Representatives reflect the diversity of our Members. Our legislation includes the best ideas to build on what works and fix what's broken in our health care system.

"Our reforms will hold insurance companies accountable, offering stable coverage and lower costs-even if you get sick, have a pre-existing condition such as diabetes or cancer, or lose or change your job. Americans deserve no less.

"In the coming weeks, we will work to produce a strong piece of legislation that the House will approve in September."
