Good news! Last night the House of Representatives passed the 21st Century Cures Act, which includes our 6-month CRT power wheelchair accessories delay, by a vote of 392-26. This shows overwhelming support in the House and sends a strong message to the Senate.
The Senate will now take up the bill, likely next week. It may encounter some resistance there, but signs are positive for passage. In the meantime, reaching out to your Senators and encouraging them to vote yes will be helpful. The NCART Board of Directors will be in D.C. next week carrying that message.
We are halfway there. Let’s keep the momentum going and we will keep you updated.
