It's not too late to do something about this! From the Computing Research Advocacy Network (CRAN) alert:
Read the CRAN bulletin to learn how to help, and do it soon! The US governement had pledged to drastically increase science spending. Don't let them cut it."The chairs of the 110th Congressional Appropriations Committees have announced their intention to pass a continuing resolution (CR) for all of FY07, rather than complete appropriations under regular order or in an omnibus bill. This will effectively freeze funding for all science agencies at FY2006 levels, endangering significant increases in federal science funding planned for FY 2007! It is important that we do not lose the progress we have made on R&D funding so far this year.
