AGU's stand on FY92 budget


  • Anonymous


For the second year in a row, AGU has formally added its voice to the debate in Congress on President George Bush's federal budget request. The position statement, approved by a vote of the AGU Council, addresses general policy issues affecting geophysical research and offers specific comments on the budgets of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, the National Science Foundation, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the U.S. Geological Survey, and the Department of Energy.

At the recommendation of AGU's Public Affairs Committee, AGU President Brent Dalrymple approved the formation of a panel, headed by Frank Eden, to draft the Union's position statement. The final version of the position was approved by the AGU Council on May 1.
