Senate Appropriations Committee

Senators have until this Thursday, April 10 to sign a letter supporting a $7.5 billion budget for the National Science Foundation in FY 2015.  Senators were alerted to this opportunity yesterday in a “Dear Colleague” from Senator Edward Markey (D-MA).  Congressional offices receive many of these requests every day.  These requests are far more likely to be reviewed and acted upon if a constituent contacts their senator or representative.  A similar letter in the House of Representatives requesting $7.5 billion for the foundation drew 132 signatures.
