Legislative Alert: Sequestration Cuts to Research
The American Society for Microbiology (ASM) encourages its members to contact their representative and senators about the negative impact the upcoming sequestration would have on science and public health. Go to the ASM’s Legislative Action Center to e-mail your members of Congress and ask them to oppose these automatic cuts.
Legislative Action Center
The ASM Office of Public and Scientific Affairs invites you to use the Legislative Communication Site. From this site you can obtain information and send messages to your representative or senators about issues of importance to the microbiological sciences. The ASM Public Affairs Office will update the page periodically with issue alerts.
