"State and local authorities are imploring the federal government to use the authority it has to secure our medical supply chain," writes the Hon. James E. Baker, director of the Institute for Security Policy and Law. "This is an 'all hands on deck' moment, not merely to flatten the curve but to leap ahead of the curve. America was once the arsenal of democracy; the D.P.A. can help make us the arsenal of public health." Baker's article, "It’s High Time We Fought This Virus the American Way," was published in the New York Times. He was also interviewed on CNBC for the segment "What exactly is the Defense Production Act?" 04/06/20
