ASPET has joined 260 patient, medical, scientific, academic, and research organizations in signing a  letter to President Trump and Congressional leadership, urging the completion of an FY 2017 spending package that includes $34.1 billion for the National Institutes of Health (NIH).  The letter and accompanying fact sheet was delivered last night.

Earlier this month, ASPET submitted a similar letter, urging the passage of a final fiscal year (FY) 2017 spending package that includes the $34.1 billion for the NIH and to ensure that NIH remains a priority in FY 2018 and beyond. ASPET has submitted letters throughout the Continuing Resolution process asserting the importance of finalizing a spending package.
