EETT eliminated from '07 proposed budget

EETT Was funded at about $690 million for its first three years in Fiscal Years 2002-2004, but was reduced to $496 million in FY2005 and to $272 million in FY2006. The 2007 budget looks very much like the President's original 2006 budget, 42 programs including EETT have been eliminated. SETDA, CoSN, ISTE and ETAN will once again begin their lobbying efforts.

You can help! Write, e-mail or phone your congressional representatives. Let them know how important the EETT dollars are to your district.
