As part of a national coalition of more than 60 business associations, the CEO Council for Growth signed onto a letter to select Members of Congress urging their support for federal research funding. Recognizing that cuts to federal research budgets threaten innovation and economic growth in the Greater Philadelphia region, the CEO Council is an active participant in the “Business for Federal Research Funding” coalition, which advocates for an increase in federal research funding.  Given the expiration of the FY15 Continuing Resolution and the need to make significant decisions regarding FY15 appropriations, the coalition urges passage of an omnibus bill that robustly funds research as a key driver of the national innovation economy.
