BREAKTHROUGH FOR PANDEMIC PREVENTION
Pandemic prevention bill makes it to the critical next step of legislative process -- we're on the way to making history.
November 9, 2021
Your activism BROKE the hold two senators placed on the historic bill we’ve worked so hard to pass.
Because of YOUR actions, we are that much closer to passing the International Pandemic Preparedness and COVID Relief Act (S.2297).
But we’re not out of the woods yet.
With Congress (and a lot of us!) consumed by the Build Back Better agenda, there are only a few weeks remaining to get this bill across the finish line.
On Friday Nov 5, R2H Action worked with the Senate Foreign Relations Committee to successfully submit S. 2297 as an amendment to the National Defense Authorizing Act (NDAA).
The NDAA is a must-pass bill that will see a vote before the end of the year.
Now the fight is to make sure that Senators Reed and Inhofe, the Chair and Ranking Members of the Senate Armed Services Committee, are willing to incorporate our bill as a “managers amendment”.
If we are successful, it means we insert our bill text into the underlying NDAA bill — and Senators can only object to our bill by voting against the entire NDAA.
This is HUGE progress and only possible because of our activists working tirelessly around the country.
Thank you for your continued energy and support towards this critical organizing. Together, we are going to make history and prevent pandemics of the future!
