Help Proposed Increases for NIH Research Funding Get Approved – Contact Your Representatives!
Date: November 17, 2016
The U.S. Congress is back in session for its final session of 2016 to complete its work on the 2017 budget. If Congress does not act soon, the $2 billion increase for the National Institutes of Health (NIH) recommended by the Senate Appropriations Committee this summer will not be approved. Additionally, $25 million for agriculture research will disappear and the budget for the National Science Foundation will remain at its current level.
The Advocacy & Science Policy Committee urges you to use your voice and join other members in emailing your members of Congress today!
