WASHINGTON – The Science Coalition (TSC) released the following statement after Congress passed a continuing resolution that provides stopgap funding for the federal government, including key research agencies, through December 16, 2022:
“Earlier this year, Congress made an express commitment to support the U.S. research enterprise by passing the bipartisan, bicameral CHIPS and Science Act. Although this continuing resolution pushes back the threat of a government shutdown, it fails to deliver on that promise and, once again, inhibits the progress of American science,” said TSC President Peter DeYoe. “Stop-gap funding measures run counter to the robust, consistent, and predictable annual investment our federal research agencies and their university partners depend on. Without a final appropriations resolution, new projects cannot commence and others are left in limbo. We urge lawmakers to pass a full appropriations package for FY 2023 without delay.”
