METHODOLOGY:

This bill prohibits the Department of Health and Human Services from applying, accepting, or expending federal funding for climate change adaptation and discontinues the Climate and Health Program, which is funded by federal grants from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.  The Department states that these funds are used for contracts with county and local governments to provide program support services, regional/local planning for extreme weather events, and interventions to strengthen response capacity, with the remainder of the funds used to hire a full-time project coordinator and a part-time staff person for health impact analysis.
