Washington, June 10, 2022
WASHINGTON – Congressman Larry Bucshon, M.D. (IN-08) cosponsored the More Options for Infants and Parents Act (H.R. 8010), a bill that aims to help prevent future baby formula shortages and help to address the immediate crisis families are facing.
“As a physician and a father of four children, I know just how critical it is to ensure that babies have the proper nutrients to grow into healthy adults. Due to the ongoing baby formula shortage crisis, many Hoosier families have struggled to find formula and this crisis is one that Hoosier parents should never have to face again. This is why, I cosponsored the More Options for Infants and Parents Act to put in place policies that will help ensure Hoosier families will not have to worry about shortages in the future,” said Dr. Bucshon.
This bill is was introduced by Congressman Brett Guthrie (KY-02) and also co-sponsored by Congressman Morgan Griffith (VA-09), Congressman David B. McKinley, P.E.
