Action Alert: Urge Your Elected Officials to Fund the Government

Because Congress and the President have yet to reach an agreement that will fund the federal government after midnight on 30 September 2013, many government employees were furloughed beginning 1 October. Moreover, many government services, such as grant and contract administration at NSF and other funding agencies, also effectively stopped on 1 October.

Please take a moment to urge your federal elected officials to do their job. It is time for our elected officials to stop holding press conferences and passing pointless legislation. It is time for Congress to start governing and pass legislation that funds the federal government.
