WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) today released the following statement regarding Senate passage of the 21st Century Cures Act, which will advance medical research, implement mental health reforms, and provide state grants to fight opioid abuse. The legislation will now be sent to the president’s desk to be signed into law.
“Passage of this legislation is a testament to Senator Alexander’s leadership and will help countless Tennesseans who are directly impacted by cancer, Alzheimer’s, mental illness and opioid abuse,” said Corker. “By streamlining the FDA review process and advancing biomedical research, this bill will encourage innovation and provide quicker access to the lifesaving medications and treatments that so many families need.”
