On Tuesday, 10 September 2013, the House of Representatives is scheduled to vote on legislation to create the position of Science Laureate for the United States. HR 1891 has bipartisan support in both chambers of Congress.

Write to your Representative to urge them to vote “yes” on HR 1891.

The legislation would allow the President to appoint up to three Science Laureates to engage the public and increase public awareness of science. Appointments would be made on the basis of an individual’s scientific contributions and ability to foster public interest in science.

If you support the establishment of a Science Laureate, please send a letter to your Representative asking them to support passage of the Science Laureates of the United States Act of 2013. Take action at http://capwiz.com/aibs/issues/alert/?alertid=62914716.
