“The House Appropriations Committee’s State and Foreign Operations Subcommittee, with oversight on funding issues involving USAID and the State Department, has six new members — three Republicans and three Democrats — bringing a mix of experience and stances on global health issues, including on policy, funding, and research,” the Center for Global Health Policy’s “Science Speaks” blog reports. The blog “looks at the new Republican members of the subcommittee that will influence global health spending,” which include Reps. Jack Kingston (R-Ga.), Ander Crenshaw (R-Fla.), and Kevin Yoder (R-Kan.) (Barton, 1/23).
