House GOP takes aim at NSF

Published On: 12/10/2010

AIBS and ASLO have posted an action alert to members asking them to defend the NSF's budget and peer review process.

The American Institute for Biological Sciences (AIBS) and the American Society for Limnology and Oceanography (ASLO) have posted an action alert notifying members of the House GOP's 'You Cut It' campaign, which invites U.S. citizens to suggest federal programs for elimination. The campaign is targeting the National Science Foundation NSF). The website for the campaign includes a link to the NSF database and invites citizens to submit specific grant numbers they believe are wasteful. Policymakers and the public need to understand that research proposals funded by NSF have been carefully screened and selected through the peer review process and that successful proposals have been judged based on the merit of their science. Support also is needed to ensure that the America COMPETES Act is reauthorized.
