Washington, D.C. – Energy and Commerce Committee members held a bipartisan teleconference forum today with Greg Burel, former Director of the Strategic National Stockpile (SNS) from March 2007 until January 2020.
E&C Republican Leader Greg Walden (R-OR) and Chairman Frank Pallone, Jr. (D-NJ) released a joint statement following the call:
“Energy and Commerce Committee members had the opportunity today to discuss the critical role the Strategic National Stockpile plays in a public health emergency with its longtime former Director Greg Burel. We discussed the history of the SNS and the role it plays during a public health emergency.
