APS Responds to Fiscal Year 2018 Omnibus Budget

The American Physical Society is extremely grateful for the work of the many members and staff in Congress, and staff at the executive branch agencies, who developed a 2018 federal budget that provides significant support for science. While the process to develop the budget this year was unusually convoluted, in the end, it was gratifying to see significant congressional support for funding that will enable greater scientific understanding, technological innovation, STEM education, U.S. competitiveness and security, and ultimately, improvements in the human condition.
