CGS signed a letter that was submitted by the Coalition for National Science Funding (CNSF) to the Senate Appropriations Committee regarding FY 2013 funding for the Commerce, Justice, and Science (CJS) appropriations bill. The letter urged rejection of attempts to reduce NSF funding and underscored the need to “protect the integrity of the scientific enterprise by ensuring that NSF and its independent scientific panels determine where the best scientific opportunities are and how to absorb any potential reductions in its budget.”
