WASHINGTON, D.C. — Energy and Commerce Committee Ranking Member Frank Pallone, Jr. (D-NJ) issued the following statement today upon news that Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman Greg Walden (R-OR) introduced legislation intended to protect people with pre-existing conditions upon full repeal of the Affordable Care Act (ACA):
