Bills Introduced – 3-13-20

Yesterday with just the House in session (and preparing to spend a week in self-quarantine with donors in their district – sorry that just came out) there were 20 bills introduced. One of those bills may receive future coverage in this blog:

HR 6272 To amend the Public Health Service Act to authorize the Secretary of Health and Human Services to make grants to eligible entities to train elementary and secondary school nurses on how to respond to a biological or chemical attack or an outbreak of pandemic influenza in a school building or on school grounds. Rep. Jackson Lee, Sheila [D-TX-18]

Lots of COVID-19 bills were introduced this week, but this one uses that as an excuse to address chemical and/or biological attacks; interesting. I would not be surprised to see language that includes accidental chemical releases as well.
