Yesterday the US Senate approved linkurl:a bill;http://www.the-scientist.com/blog/display/54650/ that includes $400 million for NIH funding. The provision is part of the Senate's Supplemental Appropriations bill for 2008, primarily intended to support the Iraq war. The bill was passed with 75 in favor, 22 opposed. President Bush has vowed to veto the bill if it contains non-military funding measures. The bill will now be sent back to the House of Representatives for a vote.
