NOTES FROM THE CHAIR - AAS Action Alert

Your DPS Committee wishes to draw your attention to the recent AAS Action 
Alert ( http://www.aas.org/~dps/MISC_NOTICES/aas.2001-3.html). We encourage 
you to read through this good summary and contact your Senators and 
Representative as requested. It need not take long.

When you write a letter or send an email to your Senators or Representative 
on these issues, please FAX or email a copy to me. If you converse with them
or a staffer, send me a note. When your Committee goes to Washington to speak 
to people on the Hill, these messages are a tangible demonstration of community
support to which staffers and elected officials can relate.

We are fortunate at this time in having Senators and Representatives, both
Republican and Democrat, making strong statements in support of increasing
funding from the levels proposed by President Bush. Your letters now and in
the near future will have positive impact as we work through this budget
process.
