Higgins Urges Increased Federal Investment in Medical Research
Congressman Brian Higgins (NY-26) recently spoke on the House floor in support of increased funding for medical research. Adjusting for inflation, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) receive nearly 25 percent less funding today than it did in 2003. This is why Congressman Higgins recently joined Congresswoman DeLauro to introduce H.R. 5580, the Accelerating Biomedical Research Act. This legislation will incrementally increase funding for the National Institutes of Health (NIH) over the next seven years.
