AAU President Barbara R. Snyder issued a statement about the House Science Committee's decision today to advance the National Science Foundation for the Future Act (H.R. 2225) and the Department of Energy Science for the Future Act (H.R. 3593).
After years of spending caps that have held back federal higher education and research investments, President Biden’s discretionary budget outline charts a bold new course to a healthier, greener, more equitable, and more prosperous future for all Americans.
AAU statement encourages Congress to negotiate a bipartisan budget agreement that raises the Budget Control Act caps for FY18 and beyond to permit robust investment in research, and higher education programs.
At a time when bipartisanship is a rare commodity, this bill affirms the resolve across party and ideological lines to find cures for devastating illnesses and strengthen investment in American research and innovation.
