federal budget

More to Go Around

Congress approved a bill Friday that would increase the US National Institutes of Health's funding by $2 billion for fiscal year 2019.

The subcommittee called for $2 billion to be added to the NIH's budget next year, increasing it to $39.1 billion.

NIH Boost Proposed

A draft bill released by the US House of Representatives appropriations committee would increase the 2019 National Institutes of Health budget by 3 percent.

Under a proposed spending bill, the US National Institutes of Health would see an additional $3 billion in funding.

While the President's budget proposal would slash the NIH's budget by 27 percent, the White House is seeking additional funding to bring the agency's budget to its 2017 level.
