Roger’s Pandemic and All-Hazards Preparedness Reauthorization Act Becomes Law
This week President Obama signed into law the Pandemic and All–Hazards Preparedness Reauthorization Act (H.R. 307), authored by U.S. Representative Mike Rogers. Rogers is Chairman of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence and a senior member of the Energy and Commerce Committee. H.R. 307 became Public Law number 113–5.
The Pandemic and All-Hazards Preparedness Reauthorization Act of 2013 (H.R. 307) was introduced by Rogers and will reauthorize federal programs to develop medical countermeasures against chemical, biological, radioactive and nuclear weapons. It will also ensure state and local governments, as well as hospitals and other medical providers, have the resources they need to prepare for and respond to an attack or pandemic outbreak. After passing the House in January, the Senate amended the legislation by a unanimous vote last month, and the House passed the final version by a vote of 370 to 28. It received the President’s signature and became a law on March 13, 2013.
