Washington, DC — In response to Senator Patty Murray (D-WA) serving as Chair of the Senate Heath, Education, Labor, and Pensions (HELP) Committee, Protect Our Care Chair Leslie Dach issued the following statement:

“Senator Patty Murray is a health care champion, and we are thrilled she is at the helm of the HELP Committee. Throughout her career, she has prioritized the health care of Americans by pushing for policies that lower costs, expand coverage, improve care and address racial disparities in health outcomes. Her outstanding leadership is invaluable as we dig ourselves out of the hole left by Trump’s catastrophic pandemic response and work to build on the strong foundation of the Affordable Care Act.”
