Ok, I’m probably not the first you’ve heard this from, but some members of congress (including democrats no less!) have introduced a bill to stop the NIH open access policy. Personally, I don’t think this will go anywhere. But personally I never thought Californians would approve Prop. 8.

For those of you in Madison (or anywhere) our representative Tammy Baldwin is on the house Judiciary committee. I suggest sending her an email or a letter. Government funded research is supposed to benefit us, not publishers.
