Bill Sponsorship: Ebola Relief Resolution
Source: H.Res.701
Congressional Summary:

The current outbreak of Ebola in Guinea, Sierra Leone, and Liberia is an international health crisis and is the most widespread outbreak of the disease ever recorded.

  • RESOLVED, That the House of Representatives--
  • calls on the international community to immediately provide additional resources to develop the capacity of affected nations to address current and future public health crises;
  • requests that the US work in a coordinated capacity to develop a unified global health security plan to adequately respond to disease outbreaks globally;
  • calls upon the US to work with international health authorities to assist endemic nations in the fielding of medical countermeasures.
Reporting pro & con by Washington Times, Sept. 16, 2014:

Amid dire warnings from medical professionals and frantic calls from Congress for greater US intervention, Pres. Obama said he'll deploy 3,000 American troops to combat an African Ebola outbreak that he says is "spiraling out of control."

The announcement comes as the Ebola death toll officially has reached 2,400, though specialists say underreporting in affected nations means the true numbers likely are much higher.

The US effort will be funded by $500 million in overseas contingency funding that the Pentagon wants to redirect to humanitarian missions. Specifically, the mission will include the training of as many as 500 new doctors and health care workers each week; the construction of at least 17 health care facilities in the region; the establishment of a joint command center in Monrovia, Liberia; and the distribution of home health-care kits in affected areas.

Others blasted the administration for taking a bite out of the Pentagon budget. "You can't have it both ways. You can't slash our defense budget on one hand, while expecting our military to do it on the other," said Sen. James Inhofe (R-OK), the ranking member of the Senate Armed Services Committee.
