ASM Joins CNSF on Funding Letter

ASM joins other members of the the Coalition for National Science Funding (CNSF), a broad-based group of professional organizations, universities, scientific societies, and businesses, to express appreciation for Congress’ continued support for the fundamental scientific research and educational programs supported by the National Science Foundation (NSF).
As the fiscal year 2020 budget and appropriations process begins, the Coalition makes two important recommendations. First, we strongly encourage and recommend that Congress reach a bipartisan agreement to raise the budget caps for non-defense discretionary spending. We are sending a letter to congressional leaders on this matter. Additionally, we recommend a $9 billion appropriation for NSF in fiscal year 2020.
