June 12, 2009: Write to your Representative about funding for the US Geological Survey (USGS) in fiscal year 2010. Congress is currently considering appropriations for next year and the House of Representatives could vote on the budget for USGS as soon as the last week of June.
Please take a few moments to visit the AIBS Legislative Action Center to send a prepared letter to your Representative. Your support for USGS is needed to persuade Congress to increase funding for the agency so that USGS scientists can continue their important science mission. If you have a few minutes, please consider personalizing your letter. It is quick, easy, and effective to send a letter through the AIBS Legislative Action Center, simply go to http://capwiz.com/aibs/issues/alert/?alertid=13540291.
