Reverse the decline in science spending

Congress went back to work in Washington last week in an effort to finish "must do" items before the end of the year. As CEO and director of Huntsman Cancer Institute, one of the premier cancer research centers in the United States, I urge Congress to work in a bipartisan manner to pass fiscal year 2015 legislation that restores, at a minimum, pre-sequestration level funding to the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the National Cancer Institute (NCI). I urge everyone who has been touched by cancer, directly or indirectly, to contact your representatives in Washington, D.C., to encourage them to restore or, even better, expand funding for the NIH and NCI.
