From an AGU Action Alert last week, I learned of HR 4002, introduced last summer, which would direct the Office of Science & Technology Policy to develop interagency guidelines “to address financial instability of” grad researchers and postdocs, including cost-of-living indexed stipends.

A great idea, in line with what I called for during the Rutgers strike. Strikingly, there’s little in the bill that OSTP couldn’t just do–there’s no need for the White House to wait for it to pass.
