As Congress returns after a two-week recess, House lawmakers will address a host of healthcare policy issues, including two more bills to repeal mandatory funding included in the healthcare reform law. On Tuesday, the House will consider a bill introduced in March by House Energy and Commerce Chairman Fred Upton (R-Mich.) to repeal funding in the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act for states to establish health insurance exchanges (PDF). The lower chamber will also consider legislation introduced by Rep. Michael Burgess (R-Texas), a physician, to repeal funding for school-based health clinics (PDF).
