ASGCT is excited to announce that a bipartisan pair of Congressmen will join the Policy Summit networking reception on September 19. Open only to in-person registrants, the reception is an opportunity to hear remarks from Rep. Scott Peters, who represents California’s 50th District, and Rep. Brett Guthrie, representing Kentucky’s 2nd District. At the reception you can hear from the two Representatives about some of Congress' key ongoing health policy discussions, network with fellow attendees, and enjoy light hors oeuvres and refreshments. 

Rep. Guthrie was elected to the House in 2008. He serves as the Chair of the Health Subcommittee on the House Energy and Commerce Committee and as a Deputy Whip within the House Republican Conference. Rep. Guthrie has worked on policies to incentivize the development of new treatments and cures, including as a co-sponsor of the Medicaid VBPs for Patients (MVP) Act.

Rep. Peters was first elected in 2012. He currently serves on the House Energy and Commerce Committee, the House Budget Committee, and the House Equality Caucus. Relevant to the CGT field, Rep. Peters’ policy priorities in office include supporting investment in research & development and promoting health innovation.

The House Energy & Commerce Committee, which both Congressmen serve on, has responsibility for matters including telecommunications, consumer protection, food and drug safety, public health and research, environmental quality, energy policy, and interstate and foreign commerce among others.
