Senate Appropriations Subcommittee approves Labor-HHS spending bill

The Senate Appropriations Subcommittee on the Departments of Labor, Health and Human Services, and Education, and Related Agencies (Labor-HHS-Education) approved their fiscal year 2015 (FY15) spending bill. The FY 2015 appropriations bill provides $156,773,000,000 in base discretionary budget authority, the same level as FY 2014. The bill includes an increase from FY 2014 spending for the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and Community Health Centers (CHCs). The committee recommends level funding for the Children’s Hospitals Graduate Medical Education (CHGME). NRHA continues to advocate on behalf of all rural health programs including the Rural Hospital Flexibility Grants, Area Health Education Centers, Rural Training Tracks, State Offices of Rural Health, and others.  More information about the Subcommittee’s markup bill is here.
