CRT Stakeholders and Friends,

We are very happy to report the great news that H.R. 7217 was PASSED in the House of Representatives this afternoon! It now moves to the Senate for consideration.

Many thanks go to Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-NY) and Rep. John Larson (D-CT) for all of their dedicated work in getting these important CRT provisions included in this year-end legislation.Thanks also go to the Energy & Commerce Committee, Chairman Greg Walden(R-OR), and Ranking Member Frank Pallone (D-NJ) for their help.

As the bill goes to the Senate,we will be working with our CRT champions Senators Bob Casey (D-PA) and Rob Portman (R-OH) to continue the momentum and secure passage. This is the final stage to protect access to this needed equipment.

Thanks to everyone who has worked to get us to this point. We will provide Senate updates as the week continues.
