Tuesday, May 27, 2014 - 3:15pm
The LSA joined with 140 member organizations of the Coalition for National Science Funding in sending a letter to the U.S. Congress requesting priority support for the funding of basic scientific research, including linguistics. The letter specifically opposes any amendments to federal appropriations legislation that would single out the social, behavioral and economic sciences directorate of the NSF, which supports basic linguistics research. Similar amendments have been made to other science legislation currently pending in Congress.
