Autism Measure Waits for Final Senate Nod

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.

Prior to the Fourth of July recess the House passed a compromise version of the bill, and a Senate committee approved an identical measure.

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.

    A lot of of whatever you say happens to be supprisingly precise and it makes me ponder the reason why I had not looked at this with this light before. This article really did switch the light on for me as far as this specific topic goes. But at this time there is 1 position I am not really too comfortable with and while I try to reconcile that with the core theme of the point, let me see just what all the rest of the readers have to point out.Well done.

    Yesterday, while I was at work, my sister stole my iphone and tested to see if it can survive a forty foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now destroyed and she has 83 views. I know this is totally off topic but I had to share it with someone!
