WASHINGTON– Congressman Steve Womack (AR-3) released today the following statement after the House passed H.R. 849, The Protecting Seniors' Access to Medicare Act of 2017

“Since its proposal, the vastly overreaching Independent Payment Advisory Board (IPAB) has undoubtedly threatened our nation’s health care system. Eliminating IPAB is a necessary step to place seniors back on the level they deserve and strip away the new and unprecedented board authority to make unchallenged cuts to Medicare spending. I was proud to cosponsor this bipartisan piece of legislation, and I look forward to keeping our promise to the American people.”


Congressman Steve Womack has represented Arkansas’s Third Congressional District since 2011 and serves on the House Appropriations Defense, Military Construction-Veterans Affairs, and Labor-Health and Human Services subcommittees and the House Committee on the Budget.
