Naturally. Now, you might talk about other aspects of the
medical research appropriations, you're working on --
Well, you mean, what's new?
Yes, what is pending, in addition to heart and cancer?
And cancer. Well, we have additional funds pending
before the House and the Senate's conference, of about 107 million,
not additional funds but a total of 107 million for the Eye
Institute, of which three million would be for the first time
for building of research facilities. They've never had any
research facilities out of the money that they've gotten, and
with 100 million dollars available for eye research for
various institutions around the country, it means that they must
have new facilities in order to do the research.
And they're now just beginning to have the chance to
get it. Now, this was suggested by me, but actually gotten
by Dr. Maumanee, who is the best lobbyist and the best eye
doctor in the United States.
He knows how to lobby.
Oh, he's fantastic.
