Our recent Worldwide Waste report exposing the National Institutes of Health’s foreign aid for animal experiments continues to make waves on Capitol Hill.

Following recent action by the NIH’s bipartisan House funding panel, a coalition of House Republicans is demanding answers from the NIH about its funding of wasteful animal testing overseas.

Led by Waste Warrior Rep. Fred Keller (R-PA), the lawmakers—citing WCW’s recent investigation—write in a new letter, “we have concerns about NIH-funded foreign research that is wasting taxpayer dollars and putting national security and human health at risk…. New reports indicate that the NIH is shipping millions of tax dollars to dozens of facilities overseas to fund questionable projects like addicting to zebrafish to nicotine and getting mice drunk.”

You can read the full letter here.

Joining Rep. Keller on the letter to NIH are Reps. Madison Cawthorn (R-NC), Rick Crawford (R-AR), Matt Gaetz (R-FL), Louie Gohmert (R-TX), Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA), Yvette Herrell (R-NM), Nancy Mace (R-SC), Brian Mast (R-FL), Ralph Norman (R-SC), Bill Posey (R-FL), Tom Rice (R-SC), W. Gregory Steube (R-FL) and Jeff Van Drew (R-NJ).

Is this how you want your money spent?! Tell the NIH to stop shipping your tax dollars overseas for animal testing!
