Written By: Jennifer Sheahen
WASHINGTON---(WENY) Congressman Tom Reed wants more money to go towards children's medical research. He announced his co-sponsorship of the bipartisan Kids First Research Act of 2013 on Monday. The bill invests $130 million dollars in scientific research for pediatric diseases and disorders like autism, juvenile diabetes, and children's cancer. Funding for the research will be freed up by eliminating taxpayer financing of presidential campaigns and party conventions, completely eliminating the Presidential Election Campaign Fund . It goes to the House floor in Washington for a vote this month.
