This week, the House and Senate both meet, but neither has plans to consider major legislation.

In late January, the House passed H.R. 307, the Pandemic and All-Hazards Preparedness Reauthorization Act of 2013. The bill authorizes funding intended to support the readiness of the public health system to address public health and medical emergencies.

It has now passed out of committee in the Senate and is ready for floor consideration. The bill also now has a cost estimate. It would spend just less than $100 per U.S. family.
