Pandemics and biological attacks are both real dangers that that U.S. needs to be prepared for. This bill would ensure that the government’s detection and response framework for these threats is adequately maintained and equipped to evolve with changing conditions.
The threats that this bill seeks to mitigate are incredibly unlikely scenarios. At a time of skyrocketing national debt, it’d be better to focus the national budget and Congress’ attention on higher-probability, more immediate risks.
