Blog: HR 1343, Health Centers Renewal Act - Congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen's Blog
By: Representative Ros-Lehtinen
I was proud to co-sponsor the Health Centers Renewal Act, a bill that asks for the reauthorization of the Health Centers Program for five years. These important centers give health care to 1 of every 8 uninsured Americans, 1 of every 4 Americans in poverty, and 1 of every 9 rural Americans. The safety net provided by these clinics cannot be emphasized enough, as they are the sole source of healthcare for many Americans.
