President Obama Signs 21st Century Cures Act Into Law

"Tuesday, Dec. 13, 2016 - President Barack Obama [pictured below with Vice-President Biden and members of Congress] on Tuesday signed into law sweeping bipartisan health care legislation intended to expand medical research and speed up approval of new drugs and medical devices.  The $6.3 billion bill, called the 21st Century Cures Act, is a complex grab bag of initiatives amounting to nearly 1,000 pages. 

With the new legislation, "We are bringing to reality the possibility of new breakthroughs to some of the greatest challenges of our time," Obama said in a Tuesday afternoon signing ceremony at the White House.  The Senate passed the bill on Dec. 7 by a vote of 94-5, and the House passed an almost identical version on Dec. 1, at 392-25."......Source:  United Press International
