Alert: Senate Releases 2023 Omnibus Appropriations Bill: The Senate has just released the 2023 Omnibus Appropriations Bill. The Explanatory Statement includes, under Emerging & Zoonotic Infectious Diseases, $26M for Lyme, as well as much language on Lyme/VBD. It also incorporates activities in HR117-403 which includes Lyme language LDA provided to Congress.
