"The Bush Administration requested $131.9 billion in federal research and development (R&D) funding for FY2005. This was $5.9 billion above the estimated $126 billion that was appropriated for federal R&D in FY2004. Based on Congressional actions, CRS estimates that federal R&D funding will reach $132.9 billion in FY2005, a 5.5% increase over FY2004. CRS estimates that 78% of this increase was for defense R&D. CRS estimates that defense R&D will reach $75.4 billion, a 7.4% increase over FY2004, while civilian R&D is estimated to reach $57.5 billion, a 2.7% increase over FY2004. Congress passed four individual appropriations bills, but only two of them, Defense and Homeland Security, have R&D programs."
