Through the AIBS Legislative Action Center it is possible to send letters to your members of Congress requesting their support for the President’s proposed increased funding for the National Science Foundation and the USGS. Appropriations for these two agencies are moving through Congress quickly. Letters from constituents at this time will help remind members of Congress that their constituents care about funding for these agencies. Consider visiting the AIBS Legislative Action Center at http://capwiz.com/aibs/issues/?style=D& to quickly send a letter to your elected officials.
You may also use the center to send a letter to your members of Congress to ask them to support funding for other agencies, such as NOAA, EPA, USDA, USFS, Energy or NIH. Simply go to http://capwiz.com/aibs/dbq/officials/ and enter your zip code to find your elected officials. Once you have your congressional delegation, simply click on the desired member of Congress. From their page, select “Contact” and then the button that permits you to send a prepared letter or the one that allows you to draft your own personalized letter.
