#KTBrief | Health Reform Moves to Senate

Now that the United States House of Representatives has passed the American Health Care Act (AHCA), action on repealing, replacing or repairing the current health reform law has moved to the United States Senate.  Instead of just making changes to the House-passed legislation, the leadership of the upper chamber has made it clear that they will be taking independent action and will work at their own pace.  Senator Lamar Alexander (R-TN), the Chairman of the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee, announced last week that, “We’re writing a Senate bill and not passing the House bill. We’ll take whatever good ideas we find there that meet our goals.”
