House Republicans Want to Defund NPR, Education Program

On Thursday, House Appropriators released a draft spending bill that ends funding for NPR, President Obama’s “Race to the Top” education program, healthcare reform, and Planned Parenthood.

The bill also has a number of anti-union policy riders.

The $153.4 billion Labor, Health and Human Services bill reflects the August debt ceiling agreement. It is greater than the bill House Republicans sought to craft. Two fiscal conservatives have held up the bill because they want a lower figure.
