As of this writing, the House is debating the “Research for Lifesaving Cures Act” meant to restore funding to the National Institutes of Health, including to continue the child cancer clinical trials. That debate is over, voting later. Now debating National Parks funding.

Obama has threatened to veto the measure. Harry Reid stammered when asked by reporters why Democrats were against it.

The vote should take place soon.
