Thompson lauds $25 million for gun violence research included in Labor-HHS appropriations

WASHINGTON, DC – On Monday, Gun Violence Prevention Task Force Chairman Mike Thompson (CA-05) announced that $25 million for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to research and study gun violence has been included as part of the FY2020 Labor-HHS appropriations.

“For decades, research on gun violence has been woefully underfunded even as this violence has become a tragic and everyday epidemic,” said Thompson. “This Congress is taking action, this time by providing $25 million in the upcoming appropriations bill for the CDC to study gun violence and research effective public health approaches to combatting this crisis.”

He added, “We’ve seen this public health approach yield great success in reducing deaths and injuries in other areas – from car crashes to diseases to food contamination. Appropriating this funding is a critical step in combatting gun violence and one we have long fought for. I will continue working with my colleagues to ensure this becomes law.”
