Banks sponsors legislation to keep Congress from opting out of AHCA

Congressman Jim Banks is co-sponsoring legislation that would prevent members of Congress from exempting themselves from the American Health Care Act (AHCA).

Banks says legislators shouldn’t be above the law.

“Congress should live under the laws it passes,” said Banks. “This is a common-sense bill to ensure that the law applies equally to both members of Congress and their constituents.”

The legislation was introduced by Rep. Martha McSally, of Arizona, on April 27.
