WHAT’S NEW

Last Chance to Register to Attend the April 17, 2013 AADR/ADEA Advocacy Day on Capitol Hill

The 2013 AADR/ADEA Advocacy Day on Capitol Hill will take place April 17, 2013, 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. The program will begin in the Rayburn House Office Building Gold Room (#2168). Federal investments in biomedical research continue to be targeted for reduction despite the well demonstrated contribution to U.S. economic growth and individual health. During FY11, NIH funded just 18% of proposals received—an all-time low. Despite this fact, $2.5 billion is scheduled to be removed from the NIH budget this fiscal year. The budget for NIH and other Federal research agencies are projected to worsen over the next decade unless Congress acts to change the course.

Your participation in the AADR/ADEA 2013 Advocacy Day is necessary to demonstrate to Congress that, even during difficult economic conditions, oral health research and education must be federal priorities. Sustained dialogue with Congress has never been more necessary for the research community.

The program will include a morning key issues briefing with Members of Congress and staff from select Federal agencies, and an afternoon of individual meetings with Congressional offices. Registration is complimentary! To register, email your RSVP to AADR Director of Government Affairs Jonathan Nurse at jnurse@aadronline.org. Visit www.aadronline.org/advocacyday for more information and to see the complete schedule.

President’s FY14 Budget Proposes Flat Funding of NIH

Yesterday, President Obama released his much anticipated budget request for Fiscal Year 2014. The President’s Budget Request (PBR) contained $31.1 billion for the National Institutes of Health or a 1.5% increase over the Fiscal Year 2012 level. The administration uses FY12 as a baseline, given that the FY13 budget was set at the FY12 level for the entire year. Reductions of roughly 5.1% will be taken from the FY12/FY13 budget level in most cases.

FY14 Budget Resolution Passes Senate Along with Moran NIH Amendment

Senator Jerry Moran (R-Kan.), a member of the subcommittee on Labor, Health and Human Services, Education, and Related Agencies, introduced an amendment to Senator Murray’s budget resolution for Fiscal Year 2014, to increase NIH funding by $1.4 billion.
