Lawmakers lament lack of funding for science agency
A House lawmaker Thursday urged experts in the nanotechnology field to push members of Congress to increase funding for the National Science Foundation.
Actual NSF funding is nowhere near authorization levels while money for the National Institutes of Health has doubled, Rep. Rush Holt, D-N.J., said at a Capitol Hill meeting on nanomaterials sponsored by the Federation of Materials Societies. NSF is the lead agency involved in the federal government's multi-agency nanotechnology research initiative.
