President Obama seeks another increase for Indian Health Service budget


The Indian Health Service would see a record $6.6 billion in funding under the fiscal year 2017 budget released by President Barack Obama on Tuesday.

The request represents an increase of $402 million, or 6.5 percent, above the current level. If accepted by Congress, the IHS budget will have grown 53 percent since Obama came on board.
