U.S. SENATE—U.S. Senator Steve Daines, along with a group of Republican senators, reintroduced the “Restore Public Health Institution Trust Act,” which would require the Government Accountability Office (GAO) to review the CDC’s decision-making and messaging process in light of past failures and provide recommendations to improve the agency’s approach.
“The CDC’s confusing and often contradictory messaging regarding COVID-19 undermined trust in the very institutions Americans were looking to for guidance during the pandemic. It’s clear we need a review of the CDC’s actions to bring more transparency into their decision-making process and provide an avenue for accountability and potential reforms,” said Daines.
U.S. Senators Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), Roger Marshall (R-Kan.), Kevin Cramer (R-N.D.), and Mike Braun (R-Ind.) are original cosponsors.
