House Wants to Cut NIH Budget

House Wants to Cut NIH Budget

WASHINGTON--The House Budget Committee proposed a plan that calls for a 5% reduction in funding for NIH in fiscal 1996, which amounts to about $1 billion out of a total NIH budget of $11.8 billion.

The Appropriations Committee rather than the Budget Committee will make the final decision, but the movement to cut federal spending enough to balance the budget and finance a tax cut is likely to significantly affect the outcome.
