Prevention Fund Targeted

The U.S. House of Representatives has targeted the Prevention Fund to find $18 billion in savings for next year to meet requirements of the House-passed 2013 budget resolution. Opponents in Congress and the White House are making their voices heard.

House leadership has requested savings be found primarily through "health programs" which include elimination of the Prevention Fund. The House voted to eliminate the Fund to help pay for the lower budget level. Speaker John Boehner had also suggested using the Fund to help pay for extending the current interest rates for student loans.

The White House, Majority Leader Harry Reid (Nev.), Sen. Tom Harkin (Iowa) and House Minority Leader Steny Hoyer (Md.) voiced their support of the Prevention Fund. For these cuts to become law, the bill must move to a full committee vote, a full House vote and then on to the Senate.
