Federal Research and Development Funding: FY2007 [Updated October 10, 2006]   [open pdf - 174KB]

"The Bush Administration requested $137.2 billion in federal research and development (R&D) funding for FY2007. This sum represents a 2.6% increase over the estimated $133.7 billion that was approved in FY2006. As in the recent past, the FY2007 increase over the FY2006 estimated funding levels is due to significant funding increases in the Department of Defense (DOD) and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration's (NASA's) space vehicles development program. On September 29, 2006, President Bush signed a continuing resolution, or CR (P.L. 109-289, H.Rept. 109-676) which essentially maintains spending at FY2006 funding levels for those agencies lacking enacted FY2007 appropriations bills, through November 17, 2006. The House has passed 10 of its 11 appropriations bills, and the Senate has passed 2 of its 12 appropriations bills. The Senate Appropriations Committee has passed its remaining 10 appropriation bills. Based on these current House and Senate actions, total federal R&D could reach an estimated $139 billion for FY2007. Congress has passed two appropriations bills, the Department of Defense (P.L.109-289) and the Department of Homeland Security ( P.L. 109 295, H.Rept. 109-699)."
