AAI sent letters to nine key Congressional leaders in late February expressing deep concern about the potential impact of sequestration. If Congress does not act to eliminate or modify the sequester, it will result in a $1.56 billion (5.1%) cut to NIH this year, and may result in even larger cuts to NIH over the next nine years.
