If this becomes law, it is a major victory for science groups, as the debate about the supplemental has focused on a variety of issues including education benefits for veterans, general controversy surrounding war funding, and presidential veto threats over the amount of domestic spending in the bill.

Subject: Top Level Summary of the President's Budget for FY 2009 for Astronomy

Kevin B. Marvel, Executive Officer

Summary: The President released the FY 2009 budget on Monday, February 4. The news for science is good. The American Competitiveness Initiative is supported and the poor appropriations provided for Congress are compensated for in the President's request. It is now the responsibility of the science community to convince Congress to either appropriate the requested amounts or improve upon these baseline numbers.

Dear Fellow AAS Members,

I am writing on behalf of a young female AAS member who has received a prestigious National Academy of Sciences fellowship, the Christine Mirzayan Fellowship. Participants learn about the public policy process and have an extensive period of training, including seminars with key policymakers and visits to the Hill and other agencies. Astronomers rarely have secured places in this program.

AAS ACTION ALERT 2000-02

 

SUMMARY

 

This action alert summarizes current events related to the Federal Budget and advocates new and continued action on the part of AAS members, members of its divisions and supporters of astronomy research. This alert is rather long mainly due to the sample letters and addresses of Congressional offices towards the end of the alert.

AAS ACTION ALERT #2000-1
[Mailed from aas.org at 11:25am 06 JAN 2000]

Summary: This Action Alert is a summary of how Astronomy fared in the Federal budget for fiscal year 2000. After a description of what happened inside the Beltway in 1999, we propose actions AAS members can take to help the funding situation for Astronomy for FY '01. Members are asked to begin action early, as last ditch communications are not always effective in Congress.

AAS Electronic Notification Service
-------------------------------------------
With this message we are beginning an electronic distribution service for short notices which we hope will be of interest to the astronomical community. We will experiment with format to make the messages as unobtrusive as possible. We will start each message with a short summary list which will give you the opportunity to decide if the rest of the message is of interest to you.
