Take Action on the FY2018 Budget Plan

The White House released its FY2018 budget proposal. It contains large cuts to scientific research and development and would hinder economic growth. The White House’s budget proposal is just that – a proposal. Congress is responsible for appropriating funds, and it is essential that members of Congress support scientific R&D.

We applaud Congress for recognizing the value of science investment in the final FY 2017 omnibus funding bill. Congress must continue its long history of bi-partisan support for investments in basic and applied scientific research.  Please join us in urging Congress to continue to support funding for scientific research and development (R&D).
