Costello Statement Regarding Status of the American Health Care Act

March 24, 2017
Press Release

Washington, D.C. -- The House has postponed or cancelled the vote on the American Health Care Act. Rep. Costello issued the following statement regarding today’s turn of events:

“The vote on the AHCA has been cancelled / postponed. Bottom line - I would have voted NO on this legislation as proposed, and for several reasons. My guiding principles for healthcare reform remain to lower costs and provide affordable access to insurance coverage for all Americans. While I have sought to make improvements to this bill, both the last minute changes, which I did not have sufficient time to review, and the present form of the bill to be presented on the Floor, led me to be prepared to vote NO.”
