Congress will soon be debating and voting on a spending measure to fund the government for fiscal year 2015. Within this spending package are modest increases to the National Institutes of Health and National Science Foundation budgets. While far from ideal, passage of this package is critical to avoid another government shutdown. The vote on the package is likely to be very close.
We strongly encourage you to have your voice heard by sending a letter to your representatives in Congress asking them to vote YES on this spending package. You can do so by clicking here.
