The Alliance for Aging Research signed on to a letter in support of the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ). The Labor, Health and Human Services, Education and Related Agencies (Labor-HHS) appropriations bill proposed reducing funding for the agency by 35 percent for FY2016. The support letter asked lawmakers to restore AHRQ’s budget authority to $364 million in the final FY2016 appropriations legislation.
