APA Urges a No Vote on HR 2578, the Commerce, Justice, Science, and Related Agencies (CJS) Appropriations Act of 2016

This morning APA sent a note encouraging all members of the House of Representatives to vote No on a HR 2578.  Read our comments below:

The American Psychological Association (APA), the world's largest organization of psychologists with over 130,000 members, joins the broader scientific, university, and industry communities in urging Members of the House to VOTE NO on HR 2578, the Commerce, Justice, Science, and Related Agencies (CJS) Appropriations Act of 2016.  In its current form, HR 2578 would dramatically underfund critical scientific research at the National Science Foundation and the Department of Justice's National Institute of Justice.
