Full Committee Markup Wrap up


07.13.22

Energy and Commerce Committee Republicans are leading on bipartisan solutions to strengthen our communications networks and improve health care services for seniors.  

Today’s full committee markup included five bipartisan bills that include improving effective spectrum use, strengthening telecommunications security, and upgrading our emergency communications services. 

The Energy and Commerce Committee has a rich history of bipartisanship on some of the most pressing issues before us as a nation, and today’s legislative markup is another example of the important strides that can be made when Congress comes together to address critical issues.
