The article offers the author's insight on the significance of forward planning for the use of the U.S. American Recovery and Reinvestment Act funding to science and technology research agencies in the country. The author points out that the promotion of science and technology has been a focus of U.S. President Barack Obama as the stimulus bill provides fundings to several research agencies including the U.S. Department of Energy, the National Institutes of Health (NIH), and the National Science Foundation (NSF). The author suggests that scientific organizations can help about how to keep the stimulus from going to waste.
