Press Release

Washington, D.C. — Congressman Robert Aderholt (AL-04) today released the following statement after the U.S. House of Representatives passed the “Right to Try” bill, sending it to the President’s desk.


““I’m very happy that the ‘Right-to-Try” bill has passed the House and Senate.  Terminally ill patients should have every chance at hope, no matter how small it might seem.  And we should not dampen the light of hope for those who are most in need.  I look forward to the President signing this bill into law.”


When this bill becomes law, it will help terminally ill patients get access to experimental medical treatments where no alternative currently exists.



In Washington, Congressman Aderholt serves as Chairman of the Subcommittee on Agriculture, Rural Development, Food and Drug Administration, and Related Agencies for the powerful House Appropriations Committee; he is also a member of the Committee’s Defense Subcommittee, the Committee’s Commerce, Justice, and Science Subcommittee, and the Helsinki Commission.
