Urge Congress to find a balanced approach to deficit reduction that does not involve further cuts to biomedical research
Published on: July 26, 2012
The House committee markup of the Labor-HHS appropriations bill has been delayed indefinitely. The delay jeopardizes the ability of the House and Senate to finalize and approve the funding bill before the start of the fiscal year on October 1 and confirms the expectation that the Congress will have to pass a continuing resolution to keep the government running. Prior to the House Committee's announcement, its Subcommittee on Labor-HHS appropriations had recommended deep cuts in the bill, including defunding implementation of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, cutting $1.3 billion from the Department of Health & Human Service's budget, and zeroing out the Agency for Health Research and Quality. The House bill also would fund the National Institutes of Health at this year's level – after several years of flat funding, NIH's inflation-adjusted budget is close to 20 percent lower today than in FY2003. To protect the NIH from funding cuts, it is critical that all Members of Congress hear from their constituents about the impact that inadequate funding has on medical research, so please visit the ASH Advocacy Center to contact your Representative and Senators today.
