Pelosi Statement on Reintroduction of the Early Treatment for HIV Act
Date:3/20/2009

WASHINGTON, March 20 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Speaker Nancy Pelosi, along with Reps.

Given President Obama's support for expanded Medicaid coverage for people living with HIV, support from key health leaders in Congress, including Energy and Commerce Committee Chair Henry Waxman and Energy and Commerce Health Subcommittee Chair Frank Pallone, and a strong bipartisan list of original co-sponsors, our prospects for success have never been greater."
