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).
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.
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.
