Mary Lou Lang – May 23, 2018
The U.S. House passed Right to Try legislation on Tuesday that gives the terminally ill access to experimental drugs showing efficacy in clinical trials but not yet approved by the FDA.
The bill now awaits President Donald Trump’s signature and he has indicated he will sign it.
The House passed the legislation by a vote of 250-169, largely along party lines, though 22 Democrats voted with Republicans to pass the bill. All the no votes were Democrats.
