U.S. Lawmakers Set Oct. 17 Deadline For Obama Ebola Plan

Senior Republican and Democratic members of the U.S. Congress have set an Oct. 17 deadline for the Obama administration to lay out details of how it plans to battle a growing outbreak of Ebola in West Africa.

Harold Rogers, the Republican chairman of the House of Representatives Appropriations Committee, and Nita Lowey, the panel's senior Democrat, wrote on Oct. 1 to the administration that detailed questions needed to be answered by the mid-October date before most of a $1 billion Ebola-response fund could be released.
