If the date is listed as "upon enactment," it means no date was specified in the statute; however, in many cases, regulatory agencies may need to issue guidance or regulations before the provision can be implemented. The information is based on the two health care reform bills: H.R. 3590, which contains the bulk of the reform language, passed the Senate in December, passed the House March 21, and was signed into law March 23; and subsequent fixes in the budget reconciliation bill, H.R. 4872, which cleared the House March 21 and Senate March 25, and the president was expected to sign March 30. The chart also borrows from a comparison chart of pharma provisionsin the two bills by Ian Spatz of Manatt, Phelps & Phillips.
