Final decisions about the President’s FY2012 budget recommendations are being made now, making it a critical time to take action. Cuts to the entire federal budget have been proposed – including NIH. Please remind the President and recently confirmed Office of Management and Budget Director Jacob Lew that a robust investment in science is critical to creating jobs, improving health, encouraging innovation and revitalizing the economy.
Take action now. Urge President Obama to maintain his commitment to “restore science to its rightful place” by proposing $35 billion in NIH funding in FY2012.
