With companion bills in both chambers of Congress, support continues to gather from co-sponsors in recognition of the threats to rural health care with the upcoming July cuts due to competitive bidding. In just one week after it’s introduction, H.R. 5210 has gained 52 co-sponsors, an increase of five representatives since Tuesday.

Recently added co-sponsors include: Reps. Bill Johnson (R-Ohio), David Rouzer (R-N.C.), Mo Brooks (R-Ala.), Adrian Smith (R-Neb.) and Sam Graves (R-Mo.).
