Newhouse Urges Biden Administration to Act on Medical Dye Shortage

WASHINGTON, D.C. –– Today, Rep. Dan Newhouse (R-WA) joined 29 of his House Republican colleagues in a letter to President Biden about the nationwide shortage of intravenous contrast fluids in hospitals. These fluids are essential in performing Computer Tomography (CT) scans and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to detect cancer and other serious conditions. The supply chain crisis and recent COVID-19 lockdowns in China have caused limited availability and delayed delivery of these products, which are expected to last throughout the summer months.


Other signers of the letter include Reps. Michelle Steel (CA-48), Elise Stefanik (R-NY), Michael McCaul (R-TX), Rodney Davis (R-IL), Adrian Smith (R-NE), Vicky Hartzler (R-MO), Doug LaMalfa (R-CA), Andy Biggs (R-AZ), Don Bacon (R-NE), David Joyce (R-OH), Bill Posey (R-FL), Brian Fitzpatrick (R-PA), Bryan Steil (R-WI), Stephanie Bice (R-OK), Tracey Mann (R-KS), Jay Obernolte (R-CA), Jake Ellzey (R-TX), Nancy Mace (R-SC), Jake LaTurner (R-KS), Burgess Owens (R-UT), Mariannette Miller-Meeks (R-IA), Maria Elvira Salazar (R-FL), Ronny Jackson (R-TX), Dan Meuser (R-PA), David Valadao (R-CA), Young Kim, John Rutherford (R-FL), Sam Graves (R-TX), and Tom Emmer (R-MN).
