Urge Congress to find a balanced approach to deficit reduction that does not involve further cuts to biomedical research
Published on: December 03, 2014
Funding for the
National Institutes of Health (NIH) remains in question.Although Congress reached
an agreement to temporarily fund federal agencies and programs – including NIH
– through the first several months of fiscal year (FY) 2015, another short-term
or full-year funding bill must be passed prior to December 11 to keep the
federal government operational and avoid a government shutdown.Congress is currently
working to attempt to reach an agreement on the FY 2015 budget for NIH and
other federal programs. Until a final deal is reached, additional cuts in
funding for NIH remain a possibility. Your Senators and Representative
need to hear from you NOW about the impact that funding cuts have on your
research and the patients you treat and the need for them to pass a full-year
omnibus spending bill that restores funding for NIH to, at a minimum, pre-sequestration
levels.Simply click "Take
Action" below, enter your contact information on the next page, and click
"Go!" If you prefer, call the Capitol Switchboard at (202) 224-3121,
ask to be connected to the offices of your Senators and Representative, and
leave a message based on the draft letter on the following page. This will not
take much time, but will have a huge impact.If
you have any questions, please contact ASH Research Advocacy Manager Tracy Roades.
