Preparedness Pulsepoints

Monitoring USG action in readiness and response

About

Edited by Legal Analyst Ryan Morhard, and delivered early Monday mornings, Preparedness Pulsepoints is the Center for Biosecurity’s weekly update on USG action on readiness and response. Each issue of Pulsepoints will compile the previous week’s Congressional and agency activity in several key areas relating to preparedness, including public health, homeland security, radiological and nuclear preparedness, and science and technology policy. Our goal is to keep the preparedness community informed of and up-to-date on relevant federal rulemaking and legislative and policy developments.
