In­dus­try ad­vo­cates urge Sen­ate health com­mit­tee lead­ers to sup­port an­timi­cro­bial pric­ing re­form

Bernie Sanders (I-VT) and Bill Cas­sidy (R-LA), chair and rank­ing mem­ber of the Sen­ate Com­mit­tee on Health, Ed­u­ca­tion, La­bor and Pen­sions, re­spec­tive­ly, in sup­port of the PAS­TEUR Act which would ad­dress the grow­ing threat of an­timi­cro­bial re­sis­tance with a sub­scrip­tion-based pay­ment mod­el.
