House Passes Feinstein’s Bill Aiming To Reauthorize Stamps Raising Funds for Breast Cancer Research
Last week, the House approved the Breast Cancer Research Stamp Reauthorization Act (S 1170), which is sponsored by Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.). The legislation now heads to President Obama. The bill would reauthorize the U.S. Postal Service's issuance through 2019 of certain stamps, the proceeds of which go toward breast cancer research at NIH and the Department of Defense's Medical Research Program. Since 1998, the stamps have raised $81 million.
