"What the federal government — the president or secretaries possessing delegated authority — have not done yet is use the D.P.A. [Defense Production Act] to create a permanent, sustainable, redundant, domestic supply chain for all things pandemic: testing, swabs, N95 masks, etc.," says Jamie Baker, director of the Institute for Security Policy and Law and professor of practice of public administration and international affairs. He was quoted in the New York Times article "Virus Surge Brings Calls for Trump to Invoke Defense Production Act." 07/31/20
