The U.S. Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions will consider seven bipartisan bills on biomedical innovation tomorrow, Feb. 9, at the first of three executive sessions.

“Senators and staff on our committee have been working together throughout 2015 to produce a number of bipartisan pieces of legislation that are ready for the full committee to consider,” Committee Chairman Sen. Lamar Alexander, R-Tenn., said in a press release. “The House has completed its work on the 21st Century Cures Act. The president has announced his support for a precision medicine initiative and a cancer ‘moonshot.’ It is urgent that the Senate finish its work and turn into law these ideas that will help virtually every American.”
