    And “it ain’t over,” Collins told his audience. Congress has not yet approved any spending bills for the 2014 fiscal year, which begins on 1 October. Instead, legislators are likely to pass a temporary stop-gap funding measure known as a continuing resolution, which would freeze agency budgets at the 2013 level until further notice. If that happens, Collins said, “we will lose another $600 million” along with several hundred more grants. (A Senate panel approved a bill that would erase this year’s sequester cut and give the agency $30.95 billion in 2014, but the House of Representatives, which has not released its version of the bill, has proposed cuts to the overall federal spending that could translate into another $5 billion cut for NIH, according to an analysis by the Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology.)

    Collins’s message to NIH’s supporters: “I still don’t think we’ve activated our case sufficiently. … We should be making a lot of noise.”

    Here is a link to a summary of the Senate's 2014 proposed Labor, Health and Human Services, Education Bill that would fund the NIH for 2014 without a decrease in funds due to sequester cuts.
