US House of Representatives Request Funding for NIH
168 Members of the U.S. House of Representatives requested to the Chairmen and Ranking members of the Full Appropriations Committee and NIH Subcommittes that NIH receives at least $32 billion for Fiscal year (FY) 2014.
AST and its lobbyists successfuly assisted in securing Members of Congress to sign-on to this important letter. This letter was spearheaded by Congressmen Markey (D-MA0 and McKinley (R-WV). We have also been regularly meeting with the House and Senate Appropriations leaders regarding medical research funding.
