Proposed Model State Emergency Health Powers Act This act was written as a response to concerns about bioterrorism raised by the events of September 11, 2001.
To assess existing legal preparedness, state health departments have made extensive use of the draft Model State Emergency Health Powers Act (MSEHPA), researched and written in December 2001 by the Center for Law and the Public's Health at Georgetown and John Hopkins universities in collaboration with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and other national public health partners.
Prepared for the Centers for Disease Control by alleged public health experts at Johns Hopkins and Georgetown Universities, the Model Emergency Health Powers Act would give the governor of any state that adopts it unilateral power to declare a health emergency, which would accrue unto himself powers not just to quarantine, but to seize and destroy property, compel treatment and even appoint "special" judges to handle those who would protest.
