U.S. House Passes PEPFAR Stewardship and Oversight Act; President Expected to Sign Bill

November 20, 2013

"The House on Tuesday cleared legislation that would extend for five years certain authorities related to federal efforts to combat HIV and AIDS around the world, sending the bill to the president's desk," CQ Roll Call reports (Kim/Tomkin, 11/19). "Members passed S. 1545, the PEPFAR Stewardship and Oversight Act, in a voice vote," The Hill's "Floor Action" blog notes, adding, "President Obama is likely to be in a position to sign the bill into law as early as this week, as the Senate passed the same bill on Monday" (Kasperowicz, 11/19). "In the House, Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Ed Royce and ranking Democrat Eliot Engel both backed the bill," the Associated Press/ABC News writes (Jackson, 11/20). Additional information on the bill is available from the Kaiser Family Foundation's "Policy Tracker" (11/18).
