Media Advisory Regarding FY97 Funding for the Agency for Health Care Policy and Research

Statement Date: Friday, June 14, 1996

Note to Editors: The following statement should be attributed to Clifton Gaus, Sc.D., administrator of the Agency for Health Care Policy and Research (AHCPR).


"Yesterday was a turning point in the budget debate over the Agency for Health Care Policy and Research. Prompted by a strong show of broad-based support from the health care industry, the House Appropriations Subcommittee on Labor, Health and Human Services, and Education last night restored $19 million it had cut from AHCPR's budget earlier in the day.

The Subcommittee's funding level for the Agency now stands at $125 million, the full amount of the Chairman's mark. This action on the part of the Subcommittee clearly demonstrates the recognition of AHCPR's contribution to improving the quality and value of the health care system."
