House Republican conference chair Elise Stefanik (R-NY) is the most high profile sponsor of date for the bipartisan 340B Protect Act.

House GOP Conference Chair Stefanik Signs on to 340B Anti-Pickpocketing Bill

U.S. House GOP Conference Chair Elise Stefanik (N.Y.), the third highest-ranking House Republican, has issued a news release and tweeted about signing on as a sponsor of bipartisan legislation prohibiting pharmacy benefit managers (PBMs) and other third-party payers from paying 340B providers below-market rates or engaging in other perceived discriminatory contracting practices.

Stefanik has garnered strong support from the conservative base for her outspoken defense of President Trump during his two impeachment trials. The upstate New York lawmaker was selected as conference chair in May by the House Republican caucus to replace Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wy.) who was ousted from her leadership position for strongly objecting to the GOP claims of a rigged Presidential election as well as her desire to look into the Jan. 6 U.S. Capitol insurrection.  Stefanik’s loud-and-proud sponsorship of the PROTECT 340B Act, H.R. 4390, stands in sharp contrast to conservative firebrand Rep. Madison Cawthorn’s (R-N.C.) negative reactions in late July to his being listed as a sponsor. He withdrew his sponsorship on July 30.
