Background Information
 
FY2014 Omnibus Bill

The final FY2014 Labor-Health and Human Services (HHS)-Education appropriations bill is funded at $156.8 billion. This figure is higher than the FY2013 post-sequester number of $149.6 billion, and closer to the Senate's FY2014 mark of $164.3 billion than the House's earlier $121.8 billion level. Public health programs fared well overall with many programs being restored to almost pre-sequester levels. However there are some programs that received deep cutsor were eliminated.  More details can be found below.

A noteworthy development is that the Prevention and Public Health Fund (PPHF) was appropriated through Congressional action for the first time since it was created as part of the Affordable Care Act (ACA).
