Science wins, keep fighting

GOOD NEWS, THE GOVERNMENT IS GONNA KEEP RUNNING TILL AT LEAST SEPTEMBER!

Better news, the budget that was passed to keep the government running includes a bump in funding for NIH, and no reduction in NSF funding. Now, it’s not all good news, there’s a serious cut to EPA funding, but let’s take the wins we can get!

And keep fighting. This budget is only through September.

    “a bump in funding for NIH, and no reduction in NSF funding” – that is in nominal (i.e. non-inflation-adjusted) dollars, I believe? With inflation, it is not quite as rosy, and the NSF budget has shrunk in real terms, as I understand it. Still, it is obviously far better than it could have been!

      In my original post I had a few sentences about how this was nominal, and we need to keep fighting for more funding, and calling your representatives. But I felt like I was starting to get preachy, and decided we should take the semi-win on this one, and deleted those sentiments. But I agree, this is not ideal.
