Congress Rejects Trump Administration’s Proposals For Deep Cuts To NIH Funding

New York Times: Congress Rejects Trump Proposals to Cut Health Research Funds
“Back in March, when President Trump released the first draft of his budget proposal for the coming fiscal year, he asked lawmakers for deep cuts to one of their favorite institutions, the National Institutes of Health — part of a broad reordering of priorities, away from science and social spending, toward defense and border security. Six months later, Congress has not only rejected the president’s NIH proposal; lawmakers from both parties have joined forces to increase spending on biomedical research — and have bragged about it. … The House and Senate committees also rejected President Trump’s proposal to eliminate a unit of the NIH that works with other countries to combat global health threats…” (Pear, 9/11).
