House Energy & Commerce to Hold Hearing - IACP will Testify
Next Tuesday, July 16th, IACP will be the only organization representing compounding pharmacy invited to testify before the House Energy and Commerce Committee. The purpose of the hearing is for the House to hear input on three piecesof legislation: the Senate approach (S. 959), Congressman Markey's (D-MA) submitted "VALID" compounding act, and the draft legislation under development by Congressman Griffith (R-VA).
Aside from the Markey sponsored bill, neither the Senate version nor the Griffith version are official pieces of legislation before the House. Unknown at this point is the impact of Congressman's Markey recent election to the Senate and whether it will advance using the co-sponsors who have signed onto the bill.
If the hearing is broadcast via CSPAN, IACP will let its members know the link; otherwise, members can view the hearing via the Committee's website. More legislative updates can be found in this week's Fax Facts!
