U.S. House Passes Bill that Includes NAEMT-supported Bills

Sep 26, 2018

The U.S. House Passes Bill that includes NAEMT-supported bills: H.R. 1876/S. 781, Good Samaritan Act and H.R. 1022/H.R. 880, Mission Zero

NAEMT applauds the House of Representatives for passing H.R. 6378, the Pandemic and All Hazards Preparedness and Advancing Innovation Act of 2018 (PAHPA). This bipartisan bill will ensure our nation is prepared to respond to public health emergencies resulting from chemical, biological, radiological or nuclear attacks from other nations, natural disasters or emerging infectious diseases. Now the bill will head to the Senate for action. Once the Senate passes their respective bill, a conference will be held to reconcile the differences.
