house Bill H.R. 1791

Preparing Medical Facilities for Large-Scale Chemical or Biological Emergencies

Argument in favor

The U.S. medical system needs to be able to respond rapidly to a chemical or biological attack. Creating a pharmaceutical stockpile, and protecting healthcare workers will be essential for stopping an epidemic.

Argument opposed

This bill does not outline any oversight to ensure that the grant funding is actually used for preparing medical facilities and personnel for a national disaster.
