BPC Action Supports the National Coronavirus Commission Act of 2020 in Health

The COVID-19 pandemic is one of the greatest national challenges that our country has faced. For years, the Bipartisan Policy Center and BPC Action have been committed to bringing together bipartisan health policy experts to develop policy to improve health care in the United States. This work will be even more critical as we rebuild our public health system after this crisis.

That is why BPC Action applauds the work of Sens. Menendez (D-NJ) and Collins (R-ME), whose legislation, the National Coronavirus Commission Act of 2020, would establish a National Coronavirus Commission to examine the United States’ response to the COVID-19 pandemic and provide recommendations to improve our nation’s preparedness for future epidemics and pandemics. As a country, it is critical that we examine the challenges that we are facing today and use the lessons learned from those challenges to build a stronger, more resilient public health system to protect from future crises – the National Coronavirus Commission Act of 2020 would help achieve this goal, and we support its passage.
