I am writing to urge you to oppose the Senate version of HR 1. This legislation includes $100 billion in spending cuts, including cuts to vital health and epilepsy programs.
As someone who cares deeply about epilepsy, I am very concerned about the $1 billion cut to medical research at the National Institutes of Health. This will likely result in a $5 million cut in funding for epilepsy research.
It also includes a $50 million cut to the Health Resources Services Administration's Maternal and Child Health Block Grant, which includes Project Access, an epilepsy program.
I strongly urge you to oppose the Senate version of HR 1 and these spending cuts, especially those that impact epilepsy research and programs.
