Effects of Sequestration at CU and in the Scientific Community

Across-the-board federal spending cuts poised to take place this January, commonly referred to as sequestration or the fiscal cliff, pose an immediate risk to our nation's leadership in scientific progress, education, and defense, as well as to job creation and infrastructure development. On Thursday, Nov. 8 at 4pm in JILA X317, FOSEP is hosting panelists Monisha Merchant (Senator Bennet's office), Ben Webster (CU), and Scott Rayder (UCAR) to discuss the effect this could have at CU and in the scientific community.
