SPSP would like to provide you an update on H.R. 1806, the America COMPETES Reauthorization Act of 2015. Recently introduced in the U.S. House of Representatives' Committee on Science, Space, and Technology, the legislation in current form contains strong implications for the social and behavioral sciences. Particularly, the bill reallocates the National Science Foundation's research dollars away from the social and behavioral sciences and toward the natural sciences and engineering. The legislation contains $140 million less than President Obama requested for the social and behavioral sciences.
The SPSP website is currently under construction and relaunch. If you visit the SPSP website, you'll notice that we are in the final phases, which means you'll see some placeholder text and circular references in place to circumvent processes not quite ready.  Stay tuned for more information, including how to access the new website and database, as well as how to access SPSP Connect! (our new member-to-member communication tool). In the meantime, contact SPSP at spspinfo@spsp.org.
