How Have the Sequester Cuts Affected You?

Josh Shiode

The indiscriminate, across-the-board budget cuts known as the sequester (or sequestration) began in 2013. That first round of cuts included more than $0.5 billion from basic science research budgets at NASA, NSF, and the DOE; more cuts are scheduled to reduce budgets each year through 2021.

The AAS Executive Office wants to hear how these cuts have affected our members. Any and all information gathered by the Society will be used completely anonymously in any communications our public-policy staff might undertake with government leaders.
