21st Century Cures Heads to the Senate

With bipartisan support, the 21st Century Cures Act was passed on the floor of the House of Representatives by a vote of 344-77 after overcoming a variety of political challenges.  This bill provides $1.86 billion per year in mandatory funding for the National Institutes of Health from fiscal 2016 to FY20 through an innovation fund and seeks to streamline the approval process for drugs from the Food and Drug Administration.
