Urge Congress to #RaisetheCaps
As Congress works on a final federal spending bill for FY18, the austerity level budget caps established under the 2011 Budget Control Act are once again in force after two-year reprieve. Unless Congress negotiates another agreement to lift these caps, the FY18 budget for non-defense agencies and programs will be constrained to a level even lower than in FY17. Under that kind of stifling spending limit, Congress simply cannot fulfill its responsibility to advance science and ensure the security, health and wellbeing of the American people.
Your input counts. Urge your representatives in Congress to #RaisetheCaps and invest in our nation’s science agencies. Tell them you want a federal budget that works for our nation.
