URGENT: Contact Congress to Keep Science in the Stimulus

The need for all science researchers to respond to CRA’s call to contact Congress regarding the stimulus has become even more urgent today. The New York Times is reporting that Senators Ben Nelson (NE) and Susan Collins (ME) are seeking to cut the stimulus by $200 billion, and $1 billion for NSF is apparently on the hit list (though it's not clear if that comes from Collins and Nelson or other sources). The full story is here but action is needed immediately on the part of the research community. CRA’s call to action tells you how to help.

Update: (2/7/09) -- Thanks to all who weighed in! The majority of the NSF increase in the bill has been preserved.
