Key funding that supports scientific research and science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education is at risk of being cut as Congress struggles with fiscal year 2011 appropriations. A three-week continuing resolution (CR) has beenhttp://www.blogger.com/img/blank.gif passed by both the House and Senate, though it is scheduled to expire on 8 April. If a new bill does not pass before then, the federal government faces a shutdown. A long-term proposal, including more than $3.5 billion in cuts for scientific research and education, passed in the House on 19 February; it did not pass the Senate.

On 15 March, American Geophysical Union (AGU) sent a letter to members of the Senate encouraging them to consider the consequences for everything from agriculture and transportation to public health and national security, should investments in scientific research and development be cut.
