Rep. Brett Guthrie (R-KY-02)
Rep. Guthrie serves as Ranking Member of the House Energy & Commerce Subcommittee on Health, which has jurisdiction on a variety of important measures including AUA-championed legislation such as the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force Transparency and Accountability Act and the specialty physician student loan forgiveness bill (H.R. 944). Throughout his tenure in Congress, the congressman has supported initiatives that improve the physician-patient relationship and reduce the burdens to medical care around the country.
