Congressman Chris Collins has released the following statement after introducing the Clinical Trials Modernization Act legislation to streamline clinical trials and expedite the discovery of disease cures:

"This legislation has the potential to improve millions of lives by freeing innovators from burdensome regulations and allowing them to get life-saving drugs and medical devices to market quicker. It reduces excessive testing that often delays critical drugs from reaching patients in need, and is a significant step towards modernizing clinical trials and drug approvals. I look forward to working with my colleagues on both sides of the aisle to pass this vital legislation."
