House-Senate Conferees Fight Over Zika Funds As FDA Approves More Assays

This article was originally published in The Gray Sheet

Executive Summary

Emergency funding to battle the summer's mosquito-borne Zika threat is trapped in a military/VA spending bill. Conferees must find a compromise between the House's $622m bid and the Senate's $1.1b offer in the thin stretch of time when both chambers will be session before they adjourn on July 15. In the interim, FDA has authorized more Zika tests.
