SECTION 1. SHORT TITLE.
This Act may be cited as the ``Freedom to Breathe Act of 2011''.
SEC. 2. NULLIFICATION OF FINAL RULE; PROHIBITION.
(a) Nullification of Final Rule.--As of the date of enactment of this Act, the final rule entitled ``Use of Ozone-Depleting Substances; Removal of Essential-Use Designation (Epinephrine)'' (73 Fed. Reg. 69532 (November 19, 2008)) shall have no force or effect. (b) Prohibition on Future Regulations.--In no case may the Secretary of Health and Human Services reissue the final rule described in subsection (a) in substantially the same form, or issue a new rule that prohibits the production and distribution of oral pressurized metered-dose inhalers because such inhalers may emit chlorofluorocarbons or other green house gas emissions, unless the reissued or new rule is specifically authorized by a law enacted after the date of enactment of this Act. <all>
