Durbin Pushes for Medical Research Funding


U.S. Senator Dick Durbin is pushing for a big increase in federal funding to promote medical research.

 

Durbin recently introduced legislation that would earmark an additional $150 billion over the next ten years for research grants.

 

The money would come from higher tobacco taxes and closing some corporate tax loopholes.

 

Durbin touted his legislation during a stop Monday at the SIU School of Medicine… which could stand to benefit from an increase in medical research dollars.
