Higher education, science groups release video supporting boost in federal research spending

WASHINGTON - A group of science, higher education and business organizations concerned about cuts in federal research dollars are hoping a new video focusing on what it describes as the "innovation deficit" will go viral.

The video put together by a team at Colorado State University features quickly drawn images and text. It says there's a widening gap on what is spent on research and what should be.

The video urges viewers to "tell your member of Congress to close the innovation deficit by supporting strong funding for research and education."

The 14 organizations behind the campaign include the American Association for the Advancement of Science, the American Council on Education, the American Heart Association, the Association of American Universities and groups supporting the aerospace and semiconductor industries.
