"President Bush requested $95.253 billion for federal R&D in FY2002, a 5.8% increase over the estimated $90.010 billion appropriated for FY2001. The House passed FY2002 Budget Resolution (H.Con.Res. 83, passed March 28th) increases overall discretionary spending 4%, matching the President's request, while the Senate's passed budget resolution (S.Con.Res. 20, incorporated into H.Con.Res. 83, passed Senate April 6) increases discretionary spending 8%, to, among other spending provisions, help accommodate an additional $2.7 billion for R&D. On May 9, and 10, the House and Senate, respectively, passed the H.Con.Res. 83 conference report (see H.Rept. 107-55) which contains a 5% increase for overall discretionary spending."
