Vote Description

HR 6 (Roll Call 431) Mandatory Health Research



This bill creates a new mandatory spending program for health research through the National Institute of Health. A key vote came on the Brat amendment, which makes the program part of discretionary spending, giving Congress more control over its budget. Current mandatory spending programs are responsible for annual increases of our $19 trillion debt. ACU opposes any new mandatory spending programs and supported this amendment. The House defeated the amendment on July 10, 2015 by a vote of 141-281
