In a defeat for nursing advocates, the House of Representatives failed to pass the FY 2008 Labor, Health and Human Services, and Education Appropriations Act by a veto-proof margin. The final vote was 277-141. The legislation included an $18 million increase for Title VIII Nursing Workforce Development Programs to bring fiscal year 2008 funding to 167.7 million. Congressional leaders and the Bush Administration will continue budget negotiations.
