Policy & Advocacy

Labor, Health and Human Services, Education, and Related Agencies

Appropriations within the Labor, Health and Human Services, and Education bill provide critical investments to support the public good. Federal funding for health research and professional programs allows researchers at our nation's top colleges and universities to advance cutting edge medical research and develop life-saving cures and enables practitioners to provide quality care for all patients. Further, annual education appropriations provide millions of students with the financial resources they need to access and succeed in postsecondary education.
