Update on Sequestration
Earlier this month, the AAG sent a message to the membership to follow up on the federal budget action known as sequestration, which is limiting funding to most federal programs, including scientific research accounts and urging AAG members to express their views on this issue to policymakers. The AAG had sent a similar message in February 2013 on this critical topic.
