Senator Britt is the lead Republican sponsor of the Access to Breast Cancer Diagnosis (ABCD) Act. The bipartisan, bicameral legislation would eliminate copays and other out-of-pocket expenses for breast cancer diagnostic tests, making them more accessible and affordable. She believes that no woman across America should be faced with the impossible choice between affording basic necessities such as food or being able to confirm whether she has a life-threatening illness.

Mental health advocacy is also a top priority for Senator Britt, which is why she introduced the Youth Mental Health Research Act last year. This bipartisan legislation will create a national Youth Mental Health Research Initiative to guide long-term mental health care efforts, better target preventive interventions for those at risk of developing mental health challenges, and improve treatments for children. As a mom, Senator Britt is proud to support critical research and enable evidence-based solutions to address the United States’ devastating, growing youth mental health crisis. She is also a cosponsor of the Creating Opportunities Now for Necessary and Effective Care Technologies (CONNECT) for Health Act of 2023, a bipartisan bill that would expand coverage of telehealth services through Medicare, make permanent COVID-19 telehealth flexibilities, improve health outcomes, and make it easier for patients to connect with their doctors.

As the only Republican mom of school-aged kids in the Senate, protecting children from the harmful impacts of social media and empowering families with resources is a top priority for Senator Britt. Last year, she introduced a bipartisan bill, the Protecting Kids on Social Media Act, that would set a minimum age of 13 to use social media apps and would require parental consent for 13 through 17-year-olds. The bill would also prevent social media companies from using algorithms to feed content to users under the age of 18. There is no doubt that our country is facing a growing mental health crisis and a deteriorating culture of violence, and social media is a key contributor to that decline. Senator Britt will continue to work with her colleagues on this bipartisan issue to enact the commonsense, age-appropriate solutions needed to tackle this generational challenge.

Senator Britt also believes it is crucial that we meet our obligations to the hardworking families and retirees who have paid into Social Security and Medicare their entire careers, and last year sent a letter to the Biden Administration in support of the Medicare Advantage program.
