What a great two days of hearings on the Keep Antibiotics Effective Act!

The sponsors – Sen. Pinsky, Sen. Nathan-Pulliam, and Del. Robinson – led the charge.

Great testimony from an amazing list of witnesses. Thanks to everyone for spending all their time to talk to the committee about the importance of the bill.

The Senate hearing can be found here (starts at the 30 minute mark).

L-R: Dr. Rob Sprinkle (University of Maryland School of Public Policy), Eric Gally (Maryland Academy of Family Physicians), Rebecca Rehr (Maryland Environmental Health Network), Joan Plisko (Pearlstone Center)

Update! The House hearing is online now here. The testimony starts at the 3:13 mark. But if you have some extra time, rewind it to the 2:50 mark to see a group of adorable 4th graders testifying on endangered species.

If you have photos from the hearing – send them along and we’ll post them.

Thanks again to all the witnesses!
