Senate Appropriations Subcommittee approves HHS spending bill


Posted on: 6/18/2014

On June 10, a Senate Appropriations Subcommittee approved the FY 2015 Labor-HHS-Education appropriations bill. The spending bill provides $156.77 billion in discretionary funding, the same amount as the FY 2014 level. Included in this bill is $265 million for Children's Hospitals Graduate Medical Education, the same as was budgeted in FY 2014. President Obama has proposed cuts to Children's Hospitals GME, rural health programs and the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, but the American Hospital Association (AHA) has urged the Senate to reject these cuts and to increase funding for several quality care initiatives.
