Topic: Appropriations

The U.S. House of Representatives recently passed H.R. 4502. The legislation included $49 billion for the NIH, with a 5% increase to the National Institute of Diabetes, Digestive and Kidney Diseases. This legislation has now been referred to the Senate. Please urge your Senators to vote for adequate funding for kidney research when these yearly bills are debated and enacted.
