AIBS Provides Testimony in Support of FY 2024 Funding for NSF

AIBS has provided testimony to the House and Senate Appropriations Committees regarding fiscal year (FY) 2024 funding for the National Science Foundation.

AIBS urged Congress to provide NSF with at least $11.9 billion in FY 2024, arguing that this level of funding is needed to “grow and sustain the U.S. bioeconomy and enable NSF to accelerate work on important initiatives at the frontiers of science and engineering.”

The testimony also applauded the passage of the CHIPS and Science Act and urged Congress to “follow through on the promise of this landmark legislation by funding NSF as close as possible to the levels authorized by the law.”

Read the testimony submitted to the House. An identical version was submitted to the Senate.
