House of Representatives Announcement

On December 10th, the House of Representatives passed a resolution urging increased federal funding for type 1 diabetes research. While this is a non-binding resolution, it highlights the personal and economic toll of diabetes, and supports the recommendation of leading diabetes researchers to double the current level of NIH funding for type 1 diabetes research.

That would be great news if not for the mountain of spending that has already occured by Congress. I would have a hard time believing that a real bill to that affect would pass in the near future.
