Tom Harkin (D-IA), is scheduled to vote June 12 on the fiscal year (FY) 2015 health research and services spending bill, known as the Labor-HHS-ED bill. This annual spending bill provides funding for the NIH, CDC and other health programs. We do not yet know what funding levels the subcommittee may be considering for the NIH and CDC. The House Labor-Health and Human Services Appropriations subcommittee, chaired by Rep. Jack Kingston (R-GA), has not yet announced a panel vote date for its version of the 2015 health spending bill.
