Continuing Resolutions Stop Progress

It's time to complete the FY20 budget process

Calling all research advocates!  Congress has passed a continuing resolution (CR), expiring midnight November 21, 2019.


CR’s provide temporary funding. What does this mean? For starters: a lack of funding certainty with long-term projects stalled. This is a drag on scientific discovery and other public health imperatives. If this CR deadline passes, another stopgap measure – even a year-long CR – will squander even more medical and public health progress.

You can change the image of things to come. But you can’t do it sitting on your hands … The science community should reach out to Congress and build bridges.
