The AIBS Public Policy Office recently provided testimony to the United States Senate Committee on Appropriations in support of increased fiscal year (FY) 2009 funding for the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

AIBS encouraged Congress to provide at least $646.5 million for the EPA Office of Research and Development, $181 million for human health and ecosystem research, and support for other biological research programs, many of which have experienced declining budgets since FY 2004.
