While Congress is facing seemingly intractable differences on health care agency spending bills and wrestles with veterans’ health bill offsets, an autism research and education program reauthorization bill is ready for final action in the Senate.
The bill would authorize $190 million annually through fiscal 2019 for NIH autism research grants and calls for enhanced HHS supervision of research, services and support activities.
The Senate could pass the House bill by unanimous consent at any time, though there is always the possibility that senators could hold up its passage on the floor.
