Senate Appropriators Recommend 1.1% Increase for NSF

June 29, 2005

The Senate Appropriations Subcommittee on Commerce, Justice and Science has sent its FY 2006 funding bill, H.R. 2862, to the floor. This newly established subcommittee, chaired by Senator Richard Shelby (R-AL), with Democratic Ranking Member Barbara Mikulski (D-MD), recommends an increase in the National Science Foundation budget of 1.1%.

The Bush Administration requested $5,605.0 million, an increase of $132 million or 2.4% above this year's total budget of $5,472.8 million.

The Senate bill recommends an increase of 1.1% or $58.2 million to $5,531.0 million.

The House bill would provide an increase of 3.1% or $170.6 million to $5,643.4 million.

"NSF has been the lead agency for the National Nanotechnology Initiative, and will continue to contribute to this emerging technology. The Committee recommends the full funding level requested for nanotechnology. This level of funding will allow the Foundation to continue to be the leader for this initiative. NSF is encouraged to make sure that public misconceptions of this field are minimized."
