FY 2023 Appropriations Letter Urges Robust Funding for Science Agencies

Last week over 100 organizations, including CGS, signed on to a letter urging the highest possible 302(b) allocation for the National Science Foundation and other federal research agencies. Specifically, the letter calls on Congressional leaders to provide a robust funding allocation for research and education programs in the Commerce, Justice, Science, and Related Agencies Appropriations Subcommittees. The organizations note in the letter, “Significant resources are urgently needed for CJS agencies, which are vital for addressing the great challenges facing our nation, including the threat of climate change; enhancing innovation, economic growth, and prosperity; and promoting equity and justice. This important work involves many agencies and programs, including the National Science Foundation (NSF), the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), the Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP), the Census Bureau, the Department of Commerce statistical agencies, and the Department of Justice (DOJ) Office of Justice Programs.”
