On January 2, 2013, automatic cuts ("sequestration") will take place unless Congress and the Administration take steps to prevent them.

Please consider signing on to a letter urging Congress to avoid a January budget sequestration, which would have dramatic negative impacts on U.S. domestic programs, including science and education.  

The letter was developed by the Ecological Society of America, the American Institute of Biological Sciences, and the American Mathematical Society and asks that Congress devise a bipartisan solution to addressing the nation's debt crisis and avoid draconian cuts that will hurt the economy and the nation's future, and do nothing to stave off the fiscal crisis.
