APA Signs on to National Letter Urging Congress to Protect Nondefense Discretionary Programs

On July 12, 2012, APA and nearly 3,000 national, state and local organizations sent a letter to all congressional offices strongly urging a balanced approach to deficit reduction (PDF, 270KB) that does not include further cuts to nondefense discretionary (NDD) programs. Many of these programs are vital to APA's continued efforts to advance psychology as a science, a profession and as a means of promoting health, education and human welfare.
