ASSE Joins in Opposing NIOSH AgFF and ERC Funding Cuts in FY13 Administration Budget

Posted in on Thu, Apr 12, 2012

ASSE has joined with 127 other NIOSH stakeholders to voice opposition to the Obama Administration’s proposed elimination of funding for Education and Resource Centers and the NORA Agriculture, Forestry and Fishing (AgFF) research program in letters to leaders of the Senate and House Appropriations Subcommittees on Labor, HHS, Education and Related Committees.  Congress rejected these same cuts in the FY 2012 budget, but the Administration is once again using the same justification (at page 40 of the document) in its proposal.
