AFRI Coalition Sends Policy and Personnel Recommendations to Biden Administration

The Agriculture and Food Research Initiative Coalition, which includes AAU, today sent their policy and key personnel recommendations to President-elect Joe Biden. The coalition recommends: robust funding for AFRI in the president’s FY22 budget request; investments in research infrastructure; including food and agriculture research as a priority for the Office of Science and Technology Policy; and increasing the 302(b) funding allocation for Agricultural Appropriations Subcommittees. The letter also recommends that President-elect Biden appoint a scientist to serve as the Under Secretary for Research, Education, and Economics for the Agriculture Department and quickly appoint a director of the National Institute of Food and Agriculture.
