Several NSC Alliance members have written to House Research and Science Education Subcommittee Chairman Daniel Lipinski (D-IL) asking that his Subcommittee include natural science collections in the reauthorization of the America COMPETES Act.  The letters support a request sent by NSC Alliance President William Y. Brown to Rep. Lipinski that the House adapt the language and policy objectives of the NSC Alliance proposed Presidential Executive Order for the Preservation and Use of Science Collections.

NSC Alliance members are encouraged to write to Rep. Lipinski about including collections in the reauthorized America COMPETES Act and to share a copy of the letter with Dr. Robert Gropp.
