Senator Joni Ernst and WCW VP Justin Goodman are all smiles as they discuss the FAUCI Act.

 

This week, Senator and Waste Warrior Joni Ernst (R-IA) introduced Fairness and Accountability in Underwriting Chinese Institutions Act.

Hmmm…what’s that acronym spell?


There’s a lot to love about the FAUCI Act. The bill would:

  1. Ban federal funds (meaning taxpayer dollars!) from being spent on gain-of-function research in China,
  2. Hold NIH grantees, employees, and officials accountable if they mislead Congress or the Inspector General,
  3. Demand a full accounting of U.S. involvement in gain-of-function research, in China and elsewhere.

On Monday, November 1, WCW VP Justin Goodman joined Senator Ernst to introduce and discuss the bill. Watch it here:

 

For more information on the FAUCI Act, see Senator Ernst’s press release:

The Epoch Times also wrote about the FAUCI Act, which you can read here. The most telling line in the story? “A spokesman for EcoHealth Alliance had not responded by press time to The Epoch Times request for comment on Ernst’s proposal and remarks.”


We’re grateful for Senator Ernst’s tireless efforts to fight for transparency and against wasteful, dangerous spending. As Justin said: “Shipping U.S. tax dollars to a notorious Chinese Communist Party-run bioagent lab in Wuhan for treacherous gain-of-function animal experiments was a recipe for disaster. We applaud Senator Ernst for introducing the FAUCI Act to protect taxpayers and public health from dangerous and wasteful spending in China and to hold NIH officials and grantees accountable for not being forthright with Congress.”
