AAPG and dozens of other scientific associations, universities and businesses sent this letter describing the benefits of federal geoscience research to Senators Cory Gardner (R-Colo.) and Gary Peters (D-Mich.). The senators are leading an effort by the Senate Commerce, Science and Transportation committee to gather input from the science and research community on federal research and development policy priorities.

The comments will guide the development of a bill to reauthorize America COMPETES, the 2010 and 2013 law, now expired, that authorized basic research at the National Science Foundation (NSF), National Institute for Science and Technology and the Department of Energy. It also supported programs to enhance STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) education.

Scientists hope that the Senate’s deliberative process will counteract the House bill that contains an unprecedented attack on geoscience research at NSF.
