Washington, DC - Congressman Lee Zeldin (R, NY-1) joined with Reps. Randy Hultgren (R, IL-14), Ben Ray Lujan (D, NM-3), and Bill Foster (D, IL-11), and co-led a bipartisan group of 69 signers in the House to call on the House Appropriations Committee to support robust and sustained funding for the Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Science.

Congressman Zeldin said, “Providing robust and sustained funding for the Department of Energy, which funds cutting-edge energy research at Brookhaven National Lab (BNL) and SUNY Stony Brook on Long Island, is critically important. Scientific research is the foundation for innovative solutions to overcome our nation’s greatest obstacles, not just to help reduce our electric bills and dependence on foreign sources of energy, but also to lead to advanced treatments for diseases such as cancer, among other challenges. This funding must be a top priority this year, and I’ll continue working with my colleagues in the House on this effort.”
