URGENT: Stop Coburn Amendment to End NSF Program for Political Science

7 October 2009

Senator Tom Coburn (R-OK) has proposed an amendment to the Senate Commerce, Justice, Science appropriations bill, which will end the National Science Foundation’s program for political science.

I have set up an online petition to rally opposition to this amendment, and I ask any and all readers to sign it, and pass it on to anyone and everyone. I also encourage everyone to call their senators and ask them to stop amendment 2631 to H.R. 2847.

UPDATE: The petition has generated over 2,000 letters to Congress in less than 24 hours!
