Congress's Indecision on Appropriations Could Damage HIV Funding

Appropriations discussions may finally be returning to Congress’s docket, just 16 legislative days ahead of the expiration of the current continuing resolution (CR) funding the federal government at extended fiscal year 2019 levels. A year-long CR looms, which could derail much needed HIV funding.

Some HIV Programs Get Cut in Senate Appropriations Bills

Last month, in an 82-15 vote, the Senate Appropriations Committee passed a Continuing Resolution (CR) in order to avoid a government shutdown while the fiscal year 2020 (FY20) appropriations process is finalized. The resolution will keep programs funded at FY19 levels through November 21 to allow both House and Senate chambers to iron out differences, although lawmakers will likely enact another CR after that date should they need additional time to complete government funding details.

Members of the Senate Appropriations Committee seem well in line with the Administration’s Ending the HIV Epidemic: A Plan for America initiative, announced by President Trump at his February State of the Union Address this year, but have underfunded HOPWA and other programs that are vital to the health of people living with and affected by HIV.

Battle Over Reproductive Rights Has Appropriations Process at a Standstill

Both a subcommittee and full committee markup of the Labor, Health and Human Services, Education, and Related Agencies (L-HHS) bill were cancelled this week by Senator Richard Shelby (R-AL), chair of the Senate Appropriations Committee, due to the possibility of the introduction of an amendment that would reverse and block the effects of the Trump Administration’s newly enforced “gag rule,” which restricts Title X grantees from disseminating information about abortion care/abortion care providers.
