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