NEWS

S.3058. Introduced by Senator Byron Dorgan, Chairman of the Senate Committee on Indian Affairs. The bill reauthorizes the Special Diabetes Program, which funds both prevention and treatment research for Type I diabetes at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and a special prevention and treatment program for American Indians and Native Alaskans through the Indian Health Service (IHS). Each of those two programs is currently funded at $150 million annually. The new legislation would increase funding for each program by one third -- to $200 million annually -- for each of the next five years.
