Senate Committee report on Fungal Meningitis Outbreak

For anyone interested, here is the 10 page report from the Nov 15, 2012 Senate Health Committee regarding the fungal meningitis outbreak. It's a pretty fascinating read when read through libertarian eyes that understands why it's so critical that things like quality control be held accountable by free market forces. The Feds are using this crisis to clamor for FDA oversight of drug compounding, so I hope Rand Paul (who serves on this committee) reminds them of this sentence in their own report when the opportunity arises... "There were a number of authorities and mechanisms for both federal and state regulators to address this issue, but bureaucratic inertia appears to be what allowed a bad actor to repeatedly risk public health."
