House Appropriations Committee Chairman Hal Rogers (R-KY) today introduced legislation that would repurpose $622.1 million in funding for Ebola and the Department of Health and Human Services to prepare for and respond to the Zika virus through September. He said the bill likely will be considered in the House this week. Leaders of the Senate Labor, HHS Appropriations Subcommittee last week announced a separate agreement to provide $1.1 billion in emergency funding for Zika, which will be considered in the Senate this week as part of the appropriations bill for Military Construction and Veterans Affairs and Related Agencies.
