Zika $1.1bn Republican Funding Deal Reached; White House, Dems Condemn

Executive Summary

Under a Republican agreement to fund Zika research and development activities and other efforts to fight the virus, which passed the House early on June 23, the National Institutes of Health would get $230m, much of which would be used on the pursuit of a vaccine, while the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention would be allotted about $480m. Democrats, however, are not on board with the deal and the White House has condemned it as too little, too late.
