President Biden’s budget proposal for FY23 contains significant new investments in the nation’s economy and its scientific and innovation enterprise; we commend the president for including these crucial items.
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 issued a statement to thank House Appropriators for their efforts to increase funding for higher education and scientific research in the Labor-Health and Human Services-Education Appropriations Bill.
With little time to review the proposed HEA bill and its amendments, we are deeply concerned that the proposed sweeping changes will negatively impact college access and affordability and prove detrimental to the education and training of our future workforce.
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.
