From the American Political Science Association, via email:
On July 18, 2013, the Senate Appropriations Committee reported its FY2014 CJS Appropriations bill. The very good news is that this bill does NOT include any restrictions on NSF funding for political science research, a positive development of our strategy to eliminate any language similar to the so-called Coburn amendment that was added to the FY2013 appropriations bill earlier this year.
Still, there will be opportunities for amendments to the FY2014 bill—or any omnibus bill – when it comes to the Senate floor.
