    Advocacy Pays Off for NIH and CDC in FY08 Appropriations
    Vote Imminent

    Congress is moving quickly on the FY 2008 Labor, Health and Human Services and Education (LHHS) appropriations after a strong vote in favor (75-19) in the Senate on October 23. House and Senate conferees combined the LHHS bill with the appropriations bill for Military Construction and the Department of Veterans Affairs (Mil Con-VA). The conference report now provides a 3.1% increase for the NIH and a 6% increase for CDC core programs. Our best chance of securing these increased funds for NIH and CDC is to achieve veto-proof votes for the conference report in both the House and the Senate.

    The House intends to vote on the conference report tomorrow, so please contact your Representative in support of the appropriations immediately. The Senate will vote after the House, but may divide the LHHS and Mil Con-VA conference reports and vote on them separately. Since Congress wants to send the conference report to the President by Veterans Day (celebrated Monday, November 12), events are expected to unfold quickly. Despite this uncertainty, it is important to let your Senators know you support the 3.1% increase for NIH in the LHHS conference report now.

    The 3.1% increase for NIH is a major achievement considering the overall tone of the FY08 budget and appropriations process this year. In real dollars, this would translate to $29.7 billion for NIH in the fiscal year 2008, not including $300 million in pass-through dollars for the Global AIDS Fund.

    So the House and Senate have agreed to a higher appropriation for NIH than either chamber recommended independently thanks to the efforts of advocates like you. Please take time now to contact Congress again to support the LHHS conference report.

  3. I could only render “stick people” scallops for you, sorry.

    My sealife artistry usually involves some sort of knife and often, though not always, heat.

    Bivalves often involve a shovel as well.

    This sounds like a good project – not least because there is only so much it is safe to take of thuglicans.

  4. you see at the seashore were done by an unknown artist whose name I have forgotten, in watercolors that I saw in National Geographic in the 1980’s. If you could find them and get permission they would be superb. You might try it.

    So this is the place all my favorite people from dkos come to now.
