Ways & Means Democrats Call on HHS to Enforce Anti-Discrimination Laws and Reverse Harmful Changes to Agency Policies
华盛顿特区 - Today, Ways & Means Committee Chairman Richard E. Neal (D-MA) and all Committee Democrats sent 一封信 健康和人类服务部（HHS）部长亚历克斯·阿扎尔谴责该机构提议的变更，使各国和HHS补助资金的其他接受者对某些美国人和退位联邦政府的责任，为所有的美国人判别不论信仰，WHO他们，或者他们是谁爱。
Specifically, the members raised their concerns with the Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) to amend certain HHS regulations pertaining to Uniform Administrative Requirements, Cost Principles, and Audit Requirements for HHS Awards, and the associated Notification of Nonenforcement of 健康 & Human Services Grants Regulation (Nonenforcement Notice), in which HHS announced it would immediately stop requiring grantees to follow non-discrimination rules. Both were published in the Federal Register on Tuesday, November 19, 2019.
“We ask that HHS provide to the Committee on Ways & Means an analysis of the scope to which the changes proposed in the NPRM would affect racial and ethnic minorities, gender minorities, children, parents, people with disabilities, the aging population, LGBTQ people, children in the child welfare system, parents in the child welfare system, and all groups of people considered a ‘protected class’ under the law,” the Ways and Means Democrats wrote.
