Washington, D.C. – Today, U.S. Representative Mike Coffman (R-CO) joined 27 other Members of the House of Representatives to introduce H. Res. 1066, “Expressing the sense of the House of Representatives that protections for individuals with pre-existing conditions should be retained in law.”

“Protecting those with pre-existing conditions is absolutely essential, and I am proud to introduce this resolution as the latest step I have taken to ensure our nation’s health care laws continue to provide Coloradan’s this important protection,” said Coffman.

The resolution states in part, "...it is the sense of the House of Representatives that Congress should support protections in law for individuals with pre-existing conditions; and in the case of a court ruling that would hinder such protections, act swiftly to reinstate such protections for such individuals”.

Maintaining safeguards for those with preexisting conditions is a longstanding focus of Coffman. In May 2017, for example, Coffman voted ‘No’ on the ‘American Health Care Act’ citing concerns that as drafted the bill failed to adequately protect some of those with preexisting conditions.
