Ask Your Senators to Join the New NIH Caucus
Senators Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and Dick Durbin (D-IL) have established a caucus to fight for more NIH funding in the United States Senate. The NIH Caucus, which includes members of the United States Senate who meet to discuss and pursue common legislative objectives, offers the opportunity to shed light on this important agency and its role in impacting human health. The caucus is working to get new Senators to join and appreciate this important agency.
Please use the form below to email your Senator now and encourage them to join the Caucus today. It only takes a few minutes and your email will reinforce Sens. Graham and Durbin’s message that NIH funding should be a priority.
The Research and Development Efficiency Act (H.R. 5056) is a common-sense piece of legislation aimed at reducing unnecessary red tape that slows and adds needless costs to federally funded research. This bipartisan legislation passed the House unanimously, but the Senate has not yet considered it. The bill would require the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy to establish a task force to recommend reforms aimed at modernizing and streamlining the administrative requirements surrounding federally funded research, helping researchers to optimize the use of awarded funds.
Don’t let H.R. 5056 die in the Senate. We need your help to build momentum for Senate passage so that the President can sign H.R. 5056 into law this year. Urge your Senators to support this important bill today for pragmatic regulation reform tomorrow!
