Congress Passes Another CR – Medical Research Cut Again
On September 18, Congress passed another short-term funding bill, called a Continuing Resolution, or “CR,” that provides flat funding for most federal programs until December 11, 2014. To pay for military operations, the bill also included an across-the-board cut of about 0.06 percent, which means that funding for medical research at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) will decrease once again. Click on the button below to tell your Members of Congress that it’s time they passed a real funding bill that includes an increase for the NIH before the December 11 deadline.
