Senate Panel Approves Boost in Funds for NSF and Other Physical Sciences

Senate Panel Approves Boost in Funds for NSF and Other Physical Sciences
July 19, 2013

The U.S. Senate Committee on Appropriations approved a spending bill Thursday that would increase spending on the National Science Foundation by $183 million over what the agency is receiving this year. The legislation is part of an overall spending bill for several agencies that would make a significant investment in federal science research programs, particularly in the physical sciences. Funds for the NSF would increase to $7.4 billion, and the National Institute of Standards and Technology would see a boost of $141 million over its 2013 spending level. The spending levels in the Senate bill are significantly higher than those in the competing House version -- which means that it's far from clear how a final budget for the agencies will shake out.
