House to Vote on Right To Try Bill

We have previously blogged about right to try laws and the bill making its way through Congress. The House of Representatives is scheduled to vote on the bill today according to the March 12, 2018 Bloomberg's Health Care Daily Report (subscription required). The Report explains

The bill set to be voted on in the House narrowed the Senate-passed version’s definition of who could seek unapproved drugs to “strike the right balance for patients and their safety,” Reps. Greg Walden (R-Ore.), chairman of the House Energy and Commerce Committee, and Michael Burgess (R-Texas), head of the panel’s health subcommittee, said in a joint statement.

If passed, the Senate will have to vote again on the measure or, less likely, form a conference committee to work out the differences, according to a statement from House Majority Leader Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.).

I'll report back once we know more.
