The President's FY 2018 Science Budget - An AAAS Analysis

The president's budget proposes significant cuts to science-related programs across the federal government. These cuts, if enacted, will impact science programs and R&D at the Departments of Agriculture, Commerce, Defense, Energy and more, as well as at the Environmental Protection Agency, National Institutes of Health, National Science Foundation and elsewhere.

But the president's budget proposal is just that - a proposal - and Congress is likely to make significant changes when it begins debating the budget later this month. Although we don't know what Congress will ultimately pass, an examination of recent debate and past Congressional actions provide clues to possible outcomes.

What does the president's budget proposal mean for science, and what are possible Congressional actions? Register today for this free webinar, led by Matt Hourihan from AAAS's Office of Government Relations, for an in-depth analysis.
