House Appropriations Subcommittee Provides $6.9 Billion for NSF

June 13, 2008

The House Commerce, Justice, Science and Related Agencies Appropriations Subcommittee marked up its fiscal year 2009 appropriations bill yesterday and provided $6.9 billion for the National Science Foundation (NSF).

The bill totals $56.8 billion, an increase of about $5 billion from the fiscal year 2008 enacted level and more than $3.1 billion above the President's request. The bill provides $26 billion for investments in science, technology, and innovation—an increase of $1.7 billion over the FY 2008 enacted level.

The bill was passed by voice vote with all members present. The full committee is expected to mark up the bill on June 19, 2008.
