A U.S. Congressman wants to add a public policy arrow to the national health care quiver.

Democratic U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown, of Ohio, co-sponsored legislation this week to guarantee paid sick days for those who are infected by the H1N1 as part of a larger overall national policy to combat the spread of the virus.

Brown, who held a media teleconference Thursday, said he talked with Dr. Thomas Frieden, director of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Dr. Alvin Jackson, director of the Ohio Department of Health (ODH) regarding the best ways to curb the spread of the virus, to educate Ohioans and to better distribute the H1N1 vaccine.
