AIBS has joined more than 1000 organizations in a letter urging Congress to reject any full-year continuing resolution that would result in cuts to non-defense discretionary spending, the funding source for most scientific research programs.
“Such cuts would be disastrous for the capacity of the federal government to serve the public, assist those in need, fuel innovation, and address national and global threats,” the groups argued. “We strongly urge Congressional leadership to instead finish the [fiscal year 2024] appropriations process and adopt the bipartisan Senate funding framework as a starting point for final negotiations.”
