Domestic TB Funding Update

The new bicameral House-Senate budget committee, chaired by Sen. Murray (D-WA) and Rep. Ryan (R-WI), is working to draft a plan on final FY2014 funding and other long-term budget issues, including sequestration, by December 15, 2013. If a new plan is not produced by this committee by December 13, budget sequestration funding cuts of 5 – 7% will be implemented across the board to all federal agencies, including the NIH and CDC, on January 15, 2014, with the exception of the Veterans Dept. and some safety net programs such as food stamps. The fiscal year 2015 budget process will begin in February 2014, when the President releases his proposed budget for the year.
