MANHATTAN, KAN. – Today, U.S. Senator Jerry Moran (R-Kan.), Ranking Member of the Senate Appropriations Health Subcommittee, issued the following statement on his support of travel restrictions:

“While the Administration assured Americans that our public health infrastructure was ready to handle Ebola, unfortunately reality has shown we still have a lot of work to do. All options should be on the table to keep Americans safe from disease, which is why I support travel restrictions on commercial airline passengers traveling from nations afflicted by Ebola. Travel restrictions will also give us time to make certain our hospitals are procedurally ready to handle Ebola patients. Coordination with the proper agencies to make certain that medical personnel and supplies can still come in and out of West Africa is critical.”
