Representative Hinchey receives award for support of science
Date:4/21/2009

WASHINGTON DC, APRIL 21, 2009 -- Two science coalitions will honor Representative Maurice Hinchey, a Democrat from New York's 22nd district, for his strong support for a national research portfolio that invests in all the sciences, engineering, and mathematics. Nearly 30 biological and agricultural scientists from universities across the nation will honor his contributions to the nation's research policy at a Capitol Hill reception this evening.

The Biological and Ecological Sciences Coalition (BESC) supports the goal of increasing the nation's investment in the biological sciences across all federal agencies, including the National Science Foundation and the U.S. Department of Agriculture. The Coalition on Funding Agricultural Research Missions (CoFARM) works to raise awareness and support for federally funded agricultural research, especially research supported through the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Agriculture and Food Research Initiative (AFRI) competitive grants program.

"As a member of the both the House Agriculture and Interior and Environment Appropriations Subcommittees, Representative Hinchey both understands the importance of and has been a long-time champion for the agricultural and biological sciences," said CoFARM Co-Chair Karl Glasener who also handles policy for the American Society of Agronomy, Crop Science Society of America, and Soil Science Society of America.

"Rep. Hinchey has long recognized the key role that all sciences play in addressing society's challenges," added BESC Co-Chair Nadine Lymn, who is also with the Ecological Society of America. "We make the best progress by broadly investing and integrating the results of all fields of science."

"Through his actions, Rep. Hinchey has demonstrated that he understands the best investment for the nation is one that funds all fields of scientific research" said Robert Gropp, who is Co-Chair of BESC and is also with the American Institute of Biolo
