Act Now! Urge your Representative to reject NSF funding cuts in FY 2013
From Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology:
The House Appropriations Committee recently recommended a $299 million (4.3 percent) increase to the fiscal year (FY) 2013 National Science Foundation (NSF) budget. The bill now moves to a vote by the full House of Representatives, and some members will likely propose to reduce NSF funding to a level below the committee’s recommendation. It is important to strongly oppose these budget cuts and explain why we must set NSF along a path of sustainable, predictable growth. Congress needs to hear that message from you NOW.
Please go to http://capwiz.com/faseb/issues/alert/?alertid=61299261 and email your Representative today. Urge him/her to provide NSF with a budget of at least $7.333 billion – the amount recommended by their colleagues on the House Appropriations Committee (and by FASEB) – in the FY 2013 appropriations bill. Together, we can make a difference for science!
