Bill to Cut Mandatory Programs Clears House Committee

On March 15, the House Energy and Commerce Committee approved, 28-19, H.R. 4725, the Common Sense Savings Act, sponsored by Rep. Joseph Pitts (R-PA).

According to the committee memo, the measure would cut $30 billion over the next ten years by reforming Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program. In addition, the legislation would repeal the Prevention and Public Health Fund established by the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (P.L. 111-148).
