Protect funding for DOE-Office of Science in FY2019, Societies ask OMB

A coalition of over 80 scientific societies and educational groups, including ASA, CSSA and SSSA, sent a letter to Office of Management and Budget Director, Mick Mulvaney, asking for strong funding support for the Department of Energy, Office of Science in the President’s FY 2019 budget request. The letter requests no less than $5.8 billion for the Office of Science so it can continue to support cutting-edge research at universities and national laboratories and the construction and operation of world-class science infrastructure needed to maintain U.S. leadership in scientific innovation, economic competitiveness and national security.
