WASHINGTON—U.S. Senators Mitt Romney (R-UT), Cory Gardner (R-CO), Michael Bennet (D-CO), and Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) introduced the Timely and Effective Systematic Testing (TEST) Act, bipartisan legislation to strengthen the nation’s health preparedness efforts for COVID-19 recovery and future pandemics by requiring a plan for diagnostic testing and public health system integration to better detect infectious diseases, prevent outbreaks, and avoid future economic shutdowns related to pandemics. The senators worked with Dr. Scott Gottlieb, 23rd Commissioner of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and leading expert in the field, to develop this legislation.

The TEST Act is endorsed by the National Restaurant Association, the American Society for Microbiology, the National Retail Federation, the American Hotel & Lodging Association, the International Franchise Association, the U.S. Travel Association, the National Association of Black Hotel Owners, Operators & Developers, and the Asian American Hotel Owners Association.
