Attendees received a complimentary copy of RNRF’s 2012 congress report, which can be downloaded by following the URL: http://www.rnrf.org/2012cong/RRJV27N2.pdf.
This report identifies the plans, anticipated impacts, and adopted measures by these agencies in the context of the Federal sequester. The report also includes an overview of funding trends for research and development at science and environmental management agencies over the past decade. Specific natural resource management agencies are examined in the context of historical program priorities and estimated budget cuts under various sequestration scenarios. SWST members and their R&D organizations will most likely be affected by Federal funding decreases in the coming years.
