The House Energy and Commerce Committee today begins a markup session on a batch of bills that would renew targeted health programs.
The session starts this afternoon with opening statements.
The pending bills would reauthorize research and support programs for muscular dystrophy, sudden infant death, and children’s emergency services.
Also on the agenda are measures to change the classification of 27 new designer anabolic steroids that have been marketed as dietary substances and streamline the FDA approval process for sunscreen products.
The measures are largely noncontroversial and will likely advance with bipartisan support.
