AIBS Endorses Joint Letter in Support of a Robust Allocation for Commerce, Justice, and Science Appropriations

AIBS has joined a broad group of 104 organizations, including research advocacy coalitions, professional societies, private companies, and universities, in urging House and Senate appropriators to provide the highest possible fiscal year (FY) 2023 allocation for the Commerce, Justice, Science, and Related Agencies (CJS) Appropriations Subcommittees to robustly fund the basic and applied research and education programs that fall under the subcommittee’s portfolio.

“Significant resources are urgently needed for CJS agencies, which are vital for addressing the great challenges facing our nation, including the threat of climate change; enhancing innovation, economic growth, and prosperity; and promoting equity and justice,” the groups argue. “This important work involves many agencies and programs, including the National Science Foundation (NSF), the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), the Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP), the Census Bureau, the Department of Commerce statistical agencies, and the Department of Justice (DOJ) Office of Justice Programs.”
