Chairs Rodgers, Griffith Announce Subcommittee Hearing on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
Washington, D.C. — House Energy and Commerce Committee Chair Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA) and Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations Chair Morgan Griffith (R-VA) today announced a subcommittee hearing titled “Looking Back Before Moving Forward: Assessing CDC's Failures in Fulfilling its Mission.”
“The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has broken the American people’s trust through its mismanagement of recent responses, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic. Its leadership has publicly acknowledged the agency’s failures and committed to reform through its ‘Moving Forward Initiative.’ However, we are concerned with the lack of transparency around how the CDC developed and is implementing the initiative. Restoring public trust will require public discussion of the causes of CDC’s missteps from across the public health sector to inform necessary solutions,” said Chairs Rodgers and Griffith.
Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations hearing titled “Looking Back Before Moving Forward: Assessing CDC's Failures in Fulfilling its Mission.”
WHAT: A subcommittee hearing to discuss CDC reform.
