The U.S. House of Representatives is scheduled to consider the FY2013 Commerce, Justice, Science Appropriations Bill, which funds the U.S. Economic Development Administration (EDA). The bill will be debated on the House floor today, May 8 and Wednesday, May 9. UEDA is working with our partners in the innovation and economic development community to urge the House to restore the $38 million to the EDA budget. This letter is for members to download and send to their public officials in support of this action.
