March 2017
American Health Care Act in the U.S. House of Representatives

On January 13th, Congress passed the Fiscal Year 2017 Budget Resolution (S. Con. Res. 3) which included reconciliation instructions for the House Committees on Energy and Commerce and Ways and Means and the Senate Committees on Finance and Health, Education, Labor and Pensions (HELP). The Budget Resolution instructed these four committees to report legislation, including repeal and replacement of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), to their respective Budget Committees by January 27, 2017. None of the Committees met the January deadline. However, the House Committees did report their respective bills on March 8, 2017.
