Congressman Tom Reed’s year-end press release notes the six bills he introduced which became law in 2014. “Our 2014 legislative accomplishments reflect the positive ways we care for our district,” Reed observed. “In a time of hyper-partisanship, it’s only fair that our constituents get results that cut through political noise. Having six bills signed into law demonstrates that we can get things done. We’re not just talking the talk, we’re walking the walk.”
The six Reed sponsored bills which became law are:
- Revitalize American Manufacturing and Innovation Act as part of the Consolidated and Further Continuing Appropriations Act, 2015.
- HOSPICE Act provisions as part of the IMPACT Act.
- Unnecessary Cap Act as part of the Protecting Access to Medicare Act.
- Rural Hospital Access Act as part of the Protecting Access to Medicare Act.
- Specialist Christopher Scott Post Office Building designation.
- Specialist Ryan P. Jayne Post Office Building designation.
Two of the six bills renamed Post Offices. The two Medicare bills are minor pieces of a wide-ranging attack on Obamacare. The RAMI Act seems worthwhile–an Obama Administration initiative. Read more about the Hospice Act at the link below.
