Blog Profiles Ranking Republican On Senate HHS Appropriations Subcommittee

The Center for Global Health Policy’s “Science Speaks” blog profiles Sen. Jerry Moran (R-Kan.), the ranking Republican on the Senate Appropriations Committee’s subcommittee on Labor, Health and Human Services, Education and Related Agencies. Moran is an advocate of funding for the National Institutes of Health, the blog notes, adding that during his seven terms as a Congressman, he “vot[ed] to keep the abstinence requirement in PEPFAR, vot[ed] in favor of the Mexico City policy …, [and] vot[ed] against funding for syringe exchange.” The blog states, “Moran’s Senate bio sums up his appropriations approach as a ‘long history of opposing reckless spending on Capitol Hill'” (Barton, 2/19).
