TFAI Statement on President Trump's FY20 Budget Proposal

The Task Force on American Innovation (TFAI), of which AAU is a member, released a statement on the release of President Trump’s FY20 budget proposal. The statement emphasized the importance of investment in scientific and engineering research. 

"As drafted, President Trump’s FY20 budget proposal provides increased funding for DOD Research, Development, Test and Evaluation while simultaneously cutting support for Defense Science & Technology, including DOD’s basic research programs that are the foundation of the national security innovation pipeline. Moreover, the President’s budget request does not adequately fund many critical agencies, including DOE Office of Science, ARPA-E, NSF, NASA and NIST. "
