U.S. Senator Ron Johnson is looking for the House of Representatives to step up and approve the “Right- to-Try” bill that has bounced back and forth from the House to the Senate in the past few months. “Right-to-Try” would allow terminally ill Americans to try experimental therapies and drugs that have passed Phase 1 testing but not the final FDA approval. Sen. Johnson, in an interview Thursday with DoorCountyDailyNews.com, says he is frustrated that the House has not approved the Senate bill.
Johnson says the Right-to-Try bill in the Senate passed unanimously and the House has been fumbling the legislation that he says has become a partisan effort. President Donald Trump has already said he would sign the bill, according to Johnson. 38 states already have Right-to-Try laws on the books.
