Obama Signs His Final Legislation

Obama Signs His Final Legislation

Washington, D.C.

When outgoing President Barack Obama signed the 21st Century Cures Act a few days ago, he kept hope alive for millions of Americans. The legislation reached the President’s desk after working through both houses of congress with strong bi-partisan support. Touted as one of the most consequential pieces of legislation in recent years, it is slated to harness some of the nation’s most brilliant minds in the fields of science, medicine and technology to attack the country’s most significant health issues including Alzheimer’s and opioid addiction, in addition to the president’s goal of fully mapping the human brain. 

The measure also provides additional funding for the country’s “moon-shot” aimed at finding a cure for cancer. The legislation calls for the nation to invest 1.8 billion dollars in an accelerated research effort. The goal is to compress research that would normally take ten years to complete into a five-year window—an unprecedented effort.
