AAU Joins CNSF in Urging Appropriators to Provide Highest Possible FY23 302(b) Allocation for CJS Subcommittees

The Coalition for National Science Funding, which includes AAU, sent a letter urging the leaders of the House and Senate Appropriations Committees to provide the highest possible FY23 302(b) allocation for the Commerce, Justice, Science, and Related Agencies Appropriations Subcommittees. The higher allocation would support the work of key federal research agencies, including the National Science Foundation, NASA, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the National Institute of Standards and Technology, and the Office of Science and Technology Policy.

The letter also notes the need to fund programs included in the pending competitiveness legislation, such as the new Directorate for Technology, Innovation, and Partnerships at NSF. “Given the scope and ambition of these efforts, significant additional appropriations for CJS will be needed to realize the potential for these new initiatives while not diverting resources from existing R&D programs,” the letter adds.
