APS Encourages Members to Write to Congress about Supplemental Science Funding

The American Physical Society (APS) has an on-going letter drive calling for support of supplemental spending on science in FY08. This spending would ameliorate some of the losses in the FY08 Consolidated Appropriatons Act (omnibus bill), passed in December 2007 and signed into law by the President earlier this year. The APS letter asks for Congressional support for about $500 million dollars, to be split between several federal science agencies.

All it takes is a few minutes to prepare the letters, using APS’s online form. If you’re interested in calling for support, please go to the following location to begin:
