APS applauds President Obama's proposed Fiscal Year 2013 Budget

WASHINGTON, D.C. The American Physical Society (APS) commends President Obama's Fiscal Year 2013 budget, which prioritizes scientific research, spurs innovation and keeps the nation on a path toward economic prosperity.

APS is pleased that the President's budget reflects the priorities of key scientific agencies that are crucial to our nation's future competitiveness the Department of Energy's Office of Science, the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Standards and Technology. Scientists, who receive funding from these agencies, are engaged in research that will generate solutions to the country's most pressing challenges, including developing technologies that will generate new, clean energy for all Americans.

APS recognizes that the President had to make tough choices at a time when the nation is confronted with mounting deficits. And we believe he made the right choice. If the U.S. is to "build an economy that can last," the country must focus on scientific research, education and innovation a proven strategy leading to job creation and sustained economic growth.

"The President's proposed science spending plan recognizes the need for enhancing revenues to help reduce the deficit. It recognizes that science has provided the basis for the majority of U.S. economic growth for more than half a century, and it is the path we must follow to secure the future solvency of our nation and to build a better America," said Michael S. Lubell, Director of Public Affairs for APS.
