7. Let's begin with the medical research that is funded by the military

Update 9/25/12 - Before recessing last week Congress did not pass appropriations bills for FY2013 which begins on October 1. To keep the goverenment funded Congress sent to the President a six-month Continuing Resolution (CR) which he is expected to sign this week.

The CR gives Federal agencies authorization to continue funding operations until March. As in past years when budgets were delayed, agencies will not fund programs like the CDMRP until the full appropriations bill is passed.

The current status is that the House passed a defense appropriations bill earlier this summer, which included $15 million for the CDMRP-NFRP. However, the Senate did not pass their version, which forced the passage of the CR. We will hold off asking supporters to contact their Senators until Congress returns in early 2013 and will be considering the full defense appropriations bill.


This is funding neurofibromatosis research. I have this genetic disorder but cuts need to be made and we need to start somewhere.
