VALID Act Letter

VALID Act Letter

We sent a letter to Senate HELP Committee leadership to highlight the implications of the VALID Act.

We have sent a letter to Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions (HELP) Committee leadership that highlights the implications of the Verifying Accurate Leading-edge IVCT Development (VALID) Act. Because the bill would modify the regulatory framework for laboratory developed tests, the VALID Act could have serious unintended consequences for children’s health and children’s hospitals. We are asking the committee to address those concerns before advancing the Senate FDA user fee package legislation that includes the VALID Act.
