As the Zika virus continues to spread, Hillary Clinton is proposing a new fund to improve the federal government's response to major public health crises.Clinton's proposal is similar to legislation introduced by Sen. Bill Cassidy, R-La., and Sen. Brian Schatz, D-Hawaii, that would release funds after the secretary of health and human resources declares a public health emergency.Earlier this month, Clinton toured the Borinquen Medical Center, a health clinic close to the Wynwood area in Miami where a number non-travel-related Zika cases have been diagnosed.Clinton laid out a plan to combat the virus last March, which included allocating $1.8 billion in emergency funds.GOP rival Donald Trump appeared to agree with Clinton that lawmakers should fund efforts to combat Zika.
