WASHINGTON– Congressman Steve Womack (AR-3) released today the following statement after the House passed H.R. 3922, The Community Health And Medical Professionals Improve Our Nation (CHAMPION) Act of 2017:
“This morning, the House took a major step forward for children and other Americans in need of care by voting to renew funding for the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP), community health centers, and other vital public health initiatives. Providing CHIP with a five year extension will continue to preserve our youth’s well-being, providing them with the healthcare they deserve. I applaud the actions of Chairman Walden and the Energy and Commerce Committee for their tireless efforts, and I look forward to further action by the Senate.”
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.
