***MEDIA ADVISORY FOR THURSDAY, JULY 7 AT 10:00 AM ET***

Cleveland, OH — Today, Thursday, July 7, 2022 at 10:00 AM ET, U.S. Representative Shontel Brown (D-OH-11) and Northeast Ohio health care leaders will join Protect Our Care Ohio to discuss the importance of making premium tax credits that were included in the American Rescue Plan permanent. They will discuss a new report that shows the premium tax credits included in the ARP have made health coverage more affordable for Ohioans. The report also lays out the dire consequences if Congress fails to extend the credits, which will expire at the end of 2022 without congressional action.

Rep. Brown was among 57 members of Congress who recently sent a letter to party leadership underscoring the importance of legislation to extend the advanced premium tax credits.
