WASHINGTON, DC – Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (Md) released the following statement on the filling of the Manager’s Amendment to the Affordable Health Care for America Act:
 
“With the completion of the Manager’s Amendment to the Affordable Health Care for America Act, we are now in the final stage of moving this critical bill through the House. We pledged we would make this amendment available for 72 hours before a vote. Now that the Amendment is posted, the clock has started.



“There are few legislative efforts that have received as much debate and discussion as health insurance reform. Our Members have worked very hard on this legislation, and I believe that as a result, we have a strong product that will lower costs and provide greater health care stability for all Americans. We are continuing to discuss this legislation with our Members, and I will bring it to the Floor once we have consensus and in keeping with our 72 hour pledge."



The Manager’s Amendment can be accessed on the Rules Committee website.
