AAAS Analysis Finds Congress Would Add Billions to FY 2008 R&D Investment

by Sabrina I. Pacifici on August 7, 2007

Press release: “The U.S. Senate and House of Representatives are poised to add billions of dollars to the fiscal year 2008 research and development (R&D) budget, with much of the proposed new funding targeted for environmental, energy and biomedical initiatives, according to a new report by the [American Association for the Advancement of Science] AAAS R&D Budget and Policy Program. Congressional appropriations measures also propose to meet or exceed President George W. Bush’s spending plans for physical sciences research in the American Competitiveness Initiative and for dramatic expansion of spending to develop new craft for human space exploration, says Kei Koizumi, the program’s director, in a report released 6 August.”
