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.
