[Mailed from aas.org at 4:25pm 21 APR 2000]

 

Summary

 

This AAS Action Alert urges members to write their Representatives (and send carbon copies to Representative Ehlers' office) in support of three new Science, Mathematics, Engineering and Technology Education bills recently introduced by Representative Vernon Ehlers.

Introduction and Request

FY 2001 Budget Outlook

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.

FY 2000 Budget Summary

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.
