FABBS: Federal funding update

FABBS Member Societies: 

The Chairman of the House Science, Space, and Technology Committee introduced a bill to reauthorize programs at the National Science Foundation, among other science agencies. The new bill, America COMPETES Reauthorization Act of 2015, will cut authorized funding for NSF’s Social, Behavioral and Economic (SBE) Sciences Directorate by 45%. The cut is similar to a bill that passed the House Science Committee last year, which cut the SBE Directorate by 42%. Because of widespread opposition to the bill last year, it did not pass the U.S. House.  We need your help again this year to prevent significant cuts.

Please share this message with your membership and ask them to contact their Member of Congress. It’s easy to do, and we need everyone to act! Details are here: http://www.fabbs.org/index.php?cID=934

Thanks for your help!
