Over 200 organizations signed on to a letter organized by Research!America urging Congressional leadership to avoid another continuing resolution and complete the FY22 appropriations process in a timely manner, speeding faster health, medical, and scientific progress.
“The dangerous impact of CRs is clear: in the science & technology realm, CRs stall progress, even though our nation cannot afford stasis. Whether the measure is the health and wellbeing of Americans and populations across the globe, U.S. economic competitiveness, or our ability to develop solutions to a host of challenges that our nation faces – from health security to water security to energy security to national security – our ability to advance is compromised by a budget that stalls crucial science, technology, and engineering advances and is clearly misaligned with current opportunity and need,” the letter said.
The letter can be found on the Research!America website.
