Kaiser Family Foundation Issue Brief Examines Status Of Funding For Zika In U.S.

Kaiser Family Foundation: The Status of Funding for Zika: The President’s Request and Congressional Proposals
This new issue brief provides a landscape of the current status of Zika funding in the U.S. and compares President Obama’s emergency request to Congress to the three congressional proposals thus far. The brief notes the president’s emergency request is significantly above the amount proposed in the three congressional bills. The proposals also differ by whether the funding would be “new” appropriations or entirely offset by changes to prior appropriations; the period of time for which funds would be available; the activities supported; and restrictions on how the funding would be utilized (Wexler/Oum/Kates, 9/6).
