urge Congressional leadership to include research relief in the next supplemental spending bill
Congress returns to Washington, D.C. next week and in the House, committee and Floor action will begin on the $1.9 trillion coronavirus relief package. Unfortunately, there are no dollars in the package to fill COVID-19 induced research gaps; however, work is starting now on a second relief package that will reportedly focus on strengthening infrastructure, growing jobs, and stimulating the economy. Shoring up our research ecosystem would advance each of those goals. Your Members of Congress can urge Congressional leadership to ensure research relief is in the next supplemental package. Use this editable email or tweet to make the case to your Members of Congress.
