A bill to reauthorize funding for GME at children’s hospitals has reached the U.S. House of Representatives, The Hill reports.

The Children’s Hospital GME Support Reauthorization Act, sponsored by U.S. Sen. Bob Casey (D-Pa.), recently passed through the U.S. Senate unanimously, according to information posted on Casey’s website.

If approved, the bill would restore a program to fund residencies in children’s hospitals, according to Casey’s website. In fiscal year 2011, children’s hospitals in Pittsburgh and Philadelphia received more than $32 million from the program.

If the House passes the bill, it will go to President Obama to be signed into law, according to The Hill.
