December 4, 2013

"On the observance of World AIDS Day, Representatives Jim Himes [D-Conn.] and Barbara Lee [D-Calif.] announced they have re-introduced the 'Cure for AIDS Act,' a bill they first introduced last Congress that would fund research and development of a cure for HIV/AIDS," a press release from Himes states. The bill would establish a five-year "$100 million research program within the Congressionally Directed Medical Research Program managed by the Department of Defense [to] fund research targeted directly toward discovering a cure for HIV/AIDS," the press release notes (12/2). The bill (HR 3630) was referred to the House Armed Services, House Energy and Commerce, according to the Government Printing Office (12/2). Additional information on the bill is available from the Kaiser Family Foundation's "Policy Tracker" (12/4).
