Please Make Two Phone Calls for Forensic Science Funding

Those of you who are Americans can help to improve forensic science services in all 50 states and the U.S. territories by making two phone calls, one to each of your U.S. Senators.

Please ask your senators to increase funding for the Coverdell National Forensic Sciences Act.

To learn your senators' phone numbers, go to the U.S. Senate Web site. In the upper right corner, you'll see "Find Your Senators" and a pulldown menu for your state. Congressional contact information is also available on the Crime Lab Project Web site.

The Coverdell Act is not a partisan issue -- the legislation establishing these grants was passed unanimously by both the House and the Senate. Underfunded labs affect everyone.

Don't be shy about calling -- let your senators know that crime labs matter to you.

Please make these phone calls today! The Senate is deciding on this funding now.
