AAAS analysis finds Congress would add billions to FY 2008 R&D investment

gency; the U.S. Geological Survey; and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA).

Some of the proposed funding for NASA would go to address concerns expressed by the National Research Council, the AAAS Board of Directors and others that the number of earth-observing sensors on NASA spacecraft could plunge in the years ahead if current NASA budget trends continue. NASAs satellite capabilities for earth observation are vital for environmental research, especially on climate change, Koizumi said.

Innovation and Competitiveness: Lawmakers approved President Bushs American Competitiveness Initiative (ACI), in some cases exceeding his funding requests to support physical sciences R&D at the National Science Foundation (NSF), the Department of Energys Office of Science, and the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). Meanwhile, both the House and Senate have approved the 21st Century Competitiveness Act of 2007, also known as America COMPETES. The measure would authorize a 10-year doubling of budgets for the three ACI agencies; support science and math education programs; authorize programs to encourage U.S. students to pursue S&T careers; and create a new DOE agency to fund high-risk, high-reward energy research.

Biomedical advances: Lawmakers in both chambers would add more than $1 billion to the White Houses spending plan for the National Institutes of Health (NIH) budget, turning a proposed cut into an increase. But, Koizumi noted, both the House and Senate would direct a significant part of that increase to the Global Fund for HIV/AIDS. As a result, the House plan would give most NIH institutes and centers raises of 1.5% to 1.7%, well short of the 3.7% rate of inflation expected next year in the biomedical fields; the institutes and centers would get 2.3% to 2.5% raises under the Senate bills.
