From the AAAS:
"Congress Releases New 21st Century Cures Legislation. After months of negotiation, lawmakers have reached a deal <http://click.aaas.sciencepubs.org/?qs=d5e10dad095ea43e27ecea10833fbc4ff0e9c45a0863271164a15352ac170118de0ceca2afb1f996> to consider a new version of 21st Century Cures legislation in the House. (The original bill – aimed at speeding the discovery, development and delivery of cures – passed by a wide bipartisan margin in the House last year but faced challenges in the Senate.) The new deal includes <http://click.aaas.sciencepubs.org/?qs=d5e10dad095ea43e07a8be11c669b471ee93d8a8ad65d683094485908e13054f9aaa753b676695e4> a $4.8 billion investment for the National Institutes of Health (NIH) over 10 years, which would comprise funding for the Precision Medicine Initiative, the BRAIN Initiative, and the Cancer Moonshot; $500 million for the Food and Drug Administration (FDA); and $1 billion in grants to states to address the opioid crisis. The new bill also contains <http://click.aaas.sciencepubs.org/?qs=d5e10dad095ea43eac80e8afa5426b8b9b56e3bdbd0ec7022aa0b027308096bdae43175d01d063c8> a mental health reform measure and the establishment of a Research Policy Board that would advise the government on streamlining regulations that affect federally funded researchers. “

> Congress needs to pass a final budget by December 9 or funding for NIH and NSF could be held flat for the coming year. Congress still has an opportunity to pass legislation that increases funding for biomedical research, but Senators must reject a “continuing resolution” or budgets for NIH, NSF and other federal agencies will be held flat.
