More Money: House of Representatives Release 2009 Spending Bill

The U.S. House of Representatives Appropriations Committee unveiled its Omnibus spending bill for Fiscal Year 2009 yesterday (pdf). The House is expected to vote on the package this week. For Health and Human Services, the Ombnibus contains $30 billion for the National Institutes of Health (NIH). This funding is in addition to the $10 billion added to NIH in the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. The Omnibus also includes a new initiative to reduce hospital and clinic infections that cause nearly 100,000 deaths each year, and requires national and state plans to combat infections with $22 million.
