U.S. House Committee Passes Action for Dental Health Bill

On the morning of July 27, 2017, the U.S. House Energy & Commerce Committee passed the ADA-supported "Action for Dental Health Act" (H.R. 2422) by a unanimous vote.

The bill would authorize funds for the Department of Health and Human Services to support activities that enhance oral health promotion and disease prevention programs.

Following today’s approval, the next stop is full consideration on the House of Representatives floor. We will post and send an alert before the final House vote so members can call Congress and urge a "yes" vote.
