Statement by Under Secretary of Science Dr. Raymond L. Orbach on the FY 2007 Continuing Resolution

Both the Senate and the House supported budget levels for the Office of Science which clearly support the President’s goals in advancing scientific research and discovery. We have seen wide bipartisan support of science for the benefit of our country and yet a year-long continuing resolution takes away many of the opportunities for advancing science in America. We urge Congress to continue critical investments in America's scientific leadership that will lead to profound benefits in promoting our nation's competitive edge in the years to come.
