Statement of Administration Policy: H.R. 2237 - National Health Service Corps Amendments of 1985

October 02, 1985

STATEMENT OF ADMINISTRATION POLICY

(House Rules)
(Richardson (D) New Mexico and two others)

The Administration strongly opposes enactment of H.R. 2237 unless it is amended to:

— delete section 2(b), which unnecessarily authorizes appropriations for 1,175 new National Health Service Corps (NHSC) scholarships over the next three years,

— reduce the excessive authorization levels contained in section 2(a) for the NHSC field program from $225 million to $161 million, the Concurrent Budget Resolution level, for the period 1986-88, and

— delete section 8, which unjustifiably authorizes $1.5 million for technical assistance to States for data collection and information gathering activities.

The President's senior advisors would recommend disapproval of this bill in its present form.
