House Of Representatives

March 18, 1993

Fetal Tissue Research

The House approved an amendment to advance fetal tissue research to combat diseases such as Parkinson's and Alzheimer's. The amendment was added to a National Institutes of Health funding bill that already contained language helping President Clinton lift a longtime ban on the research. It removed obstacles placed by anti-abortion lawmakers in the path of government-sponsored research involving fetal tissue transplantation.

The vote was 253 to 173. A yes vote was to advance federally sponsored fetal tissue research.

Health Budget Freeze Rejected

The House rejected an amendment to freeze the $6.9-billion National Institutes of Health fiscal 1994 budget (above) at the previous year's level. The measure sought to save at least $1.7 billion.

Sponsor Doug Bereuter (R-Neb.) said the bill "is not just about health research legislation, it is a spending issue." Opponent Henry A. Waxman (D-Los Angeles) said "support for health research is a worthy legacy for the 103rd Congress. NIH is a national treasure."

The vote was 193 to 234. A yes vote was to freeze the new NIH budget at 1993 levels.

AIDS and Immigrants

The House endorsed a ban on the immigration of HIV-infected persons to the United States. The non-binding vote urged acceptance of Senate-passed language writing the ban into the National Institutes of Health budget (above).

The vote was 356 for and 58 against. A yes vote was to ban HIV-infected immigrants from the United States.
