R&D funding battles begin

U.S. engineers and their allies descend on the nation's capital this week to lobby for “balanced” federal funding for research and development. The two-day lobbying effort that begins Wednesday (March 3) comes against a backdrop of record unemployment among U.S. engineers. The Bush administration's fiscal 2005 budget request proposes spending $132 billion next year for basic research. High-profile efforts such as nanotechnology development would receive big increases that would drive annual spending on the technology to $1 billion in 2005.
