*Keep in mind…
  • Department of Defense technology development activities have declined a little more than everything else

  • Areas of (rough) agreement: Defense, DHS, Veterans, USDA, STEM reorganization
  • Rough agreement in priorities but divergent funding anyway: NSF, some NASA, DOE Science, NIST
  • Areas of complete divergence: clean energy, environment

agency appropriations notes
Agency Appropriations Notes
  • NSF: Many priorities embraced, except social sciences
  • NASA: Big divergence for science (except planetary)
  • DOE Science: divergence in BER, fusion, computing priorities
  • Environment R&D: main targets EPA, Forest Service
  • NIH: No House numbers yet; translational medicine?
