(Washington, D.C.) –
Congressman Larry Bucshon, M.D. (IN-08) released the following statement after voting in support of the Pandemic and All Hazards Preparedness and Advancing Innovation Act of 2018 (PAHPA) (H.R. 6378):

“An important part of ensuring our national security and protecting Americans in the 21st century is ensuring our nation is adequately prepared to prevent – and respond to – large-scale public health emergencies that arise from a disease outbreak, bioterror attack, or chemical incident. The Pandemic and All Hazards Preparedness and Advancing Innovation Act will bolster our emergency preparedness infrastructure by providing and improving the available resources to train health care professionals for possible pandemic outbreaks, continuing to develop our national stockpiles of vaccines and medical equipment, and establishing new advisory groups focused on protecting our highly vulnerable populations like senior citizens and those with disabilities.”
