Modern Healthcare

The Republican chairman of the House Appropriations Committee announced a partial list of spending cuts that would eliminate billions in healthcare funding in the remaining seven months of the fiscal year.

A package of reductions expected to exceed $74 billion will be included in the upcoming Continuing Resolution bill, according to Committee Chairman Hal Rogers (R-Ky.). “The cuts in this CR will represent the largest reduction in discretionary spending in the history of our nation,” Rogers said in a statement.
