Congress Proposes Increased National Library of Medicine Funding

The House and Senate Appropriations Committees have proposed increasing National Library of Medicine’s funding for 2017:

  • The House bill provides $403,086,000 (7.5 million above FY 2016), and
  • The Senate Bill provides $412,097,000 (16.5 million above FY 2016).

 House Report 114-699 directs NLM to “systematically coordinate through other HHS agencies to share new scientific information to ensure it reaches the community and providers through various other HHS outreach programs.”

Senate Report 114-274 directs that “of the funds the Committee has provided, $4,000,000 is for the improvement of information systems, to remain available until September 30, 2018.”

Next steps call for the House and Senate to vote on their individual bills.
