Modern Healthcare

Advancing toward their goal of breaking apart the healthcare reform law, House Republicans scored another victory Wednesday when the lower chamber voted to repeal the act’s prevention and public-health fund. In a 236-183 vote, the House repealed the fund that grants full authority to the HHS secretary to administer $17.75 billion in funding from fiscal 2012 to 2021.
