Governors Push for Increased NIH Funding

Yesterday, the governors of 25 states — including Washington’s Christine Gregoire — wrote to the Chairmen and Ranking Members of the House and Senate Budget Committees to ask that the budget resolution in each chamber contain enough funding to allow the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to be funded at the Administration-requested level of $32.2 billion in FY11.  The amount represents an increase of 3.2 percent over the FY10 level.
