Wicker, Klobuchar Bill to Help Patients with MD Signed Into Law

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senators Roger Wicker (R-Miss.) and Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) announced that their bipartisan legislation to help improve the lives of patients with muscular dystrophy has been signed into law. The Senators’ legislation will update and improve current law, the Muscular Dystrophy Community Assistance, Research & Education (MD CARE) Act, which supports medical research and policies to improve treatments and quality of life for muscular dystrophy patients.

“We are coming closer to a cure for muscular dystrophy, and bipartisan support for targeted and effective research is helping make a crucial difference,” Wicker said. “The gains we have made hold the promise of even greater breakthroughs to come and, one day, a cure.”
