#RecordOfSuccess: House Passes Guthrie Sports Medicine Bill


One of Seven Bipartisan E&C Bills Passed By the House Today

WASHINGTON, DC – Building on the Energy and Commerce Committee’s bipartisan #RecordOfSuccess, the House of Representatives today passed legislation by voice vote to ensure sports medicine professionals are covered by their malpractice insurance when providing care to their athletes or teams in other states. H.R. 921, the Sports Medicine Licensure Clarity Act of 2016, is authored by Health Subcommittee Vice Chairman Brett Guthrie (R-KY).

“This commonsense bill will bring certainty to the health professionals tasked with taking care of our athletes,” said Rep. Guthrie. “It’s a win for everyone involved, and ensures those that know our athletes best are responsible for their care, even when playing and traveling out of state.”
