Bird flu bill OK’d by House; action needed by Senate

Are you properly prepared for the bird flu?The House approved a $15 million pandemic flu bill that would help area hospitals get flu-fighting medicine and additional hospital beds.

Rep. Barry Finegold, D-Andover, authored the legislation, which would authorize the state Department of Public Health to buy the medicine and beds hospitals needed. He said the state has to help local hospitals prepare for a bird flu pandemic, as far away and unlikely as it (bird flu) may seem.
