Legislation Would Eliminate the NIAID 

It would be replaced by three separate national research institutes. 

A bill known as the NIH Reform Act would eliminate the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), which had been headed for decades by Dr. Anthony Fauci. 

The legislation, introduced by Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky in the Senate and Representative Chip Roy of Texas in the House would create three separate national research institutes in place of NAIAD. Each would be led by directors subject to Senate confirmation and limited to no more than two 5-year terms. 

“We’ve learned a lot over the past few years, but one lesson in particular is that no one person should be deemed ‘dictator-in-chief.’ No one person should have unilateral authority to make decisions for millions of Americans,” Senator Paul said before introducing the bill. 

He added, “To ensure that ineffective, unscientific lockdowns and mandates are never foisted on the American people ever again, I’ve introduced this bill to eliminate Dr. Anthony Fauci’s previous position as Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and divide the role into three separate new institutes. This will create accountability and oversight into a taxpayer-funded position that has largely abused its power and has been responsible for many failures and misinformation during the COVID-19 pandemic.” 

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Senator Paul and Representative Roy as they seek to rein in government power and bureaucracy.
  • For members of the House and Senate as they consider and vote on the proposed legislation.
