The White House FY2018 budget outline was released this week with devastating proposed cuts to the NIH and other agencies. Specifically, it cuts $54 billion in non-defense discretionary (NDD) spending across the government, including reducing the NIH
budget by $5.8 billion (nearly 20 percent) and the DOE Office of Science budget by $900 million (approximately 17 percent). The release of the Administration’s budget proposal is the first step in the lengthy federal budget and appropriations process; a complete White House FY 2018 budget will be sent to Congress in May.
ASPET issued a statement urging Congress to reject the Administration’s budget proposal. Read the full statement here.
