Bennet, Young, Bipartisan House Colleagues reintroduce bipartisan PASTEUR act to fight antimicrobial resistance

  28 April 2023

Colorado U.S. Senator Michael Bennet and U.S. Senator Todd Young (R-Ind.), alongside U.S. Representatives Scott Peters (D-Calif.), Drew Ferguson (R-Ga.), Mike Levin (D-Calif.), and Jake LaTurner (R-Kan.) reintroduced the Pioneering Antimicrobial Subscriptions to End Upsurging Resistance (PASTEUR) Act to encourage innovative drug development targeting the most threatening infections, improve the appropriate use of antibiotics, and ensure domestic availability of antibiotics when needed.

“Right now, we don’t have the tools to address the threat posed by antimicrobial resistance – and infectious disease experts are warning us that it will only get worse,” said Bennet.“The bipartisan PASTEUR Act is the strongest bill ever written to strengthen antibiotic development and use. It will fix our market failures, expand the pipeline for next generation antibiotics, and save lives. We can’t sit on our hands as this public health crisis arrives – we have to act now.”
