Marsha Blackburn, Dianne Feinstein Introduce Bill to Protect Access to Breast Cancer Screenings

 

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – U.S. Senators Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.) and Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) have introduced the Protecting Access to Lifesaving Screenings (PALS) Act of 2021, a bill to preserve coverage for routine breast cancer screening for women beginning at age 40.

“Breast cancer is far too common a disease. One woman out of eight will develop some form of breast cancer during her life, so most of us know firsthand how devastating it can be for our families and friends. By making these screenings available during an age in which this disease can be most aggressive, it is possible to save the lives of so many sisters, daughters, mothers, and even grandmothers,” said Senator Blackburn.
