Boustany Requests Information on ObamaCare Grant Program
Grant Program Operates With No Transparency or Accountability
Wednesday, June 13, 2012
Boustany stated, “The Democrats’ health care law gives CMMI $10 billion in taxpayer dollars every decade without a shred of transparency, accountability or congressional review. In fact, the law explicitly shields CMMI’s decisions from public review. We must hold CMMI accountable and protect hardworking taxpayers.”
Last year, HHS announced plans to hand out $1 billion in CMMI grants. In May of this year, HHS announced the first round of CMMI grants, totaling $123 million to 26 organizations and ranging from approximately $1 million to $30 million for a three-year period.
