NSF Appropriations for FY15 Awaits Congress' Return in September

August 25, 2014

U.S. Capitol

The House and Senate are in recess until September 8, 2014. Final action on measures to fund NSF for the 2015 fiscal year (FY), which begins Oct. 1, 2014, await Congress’ return. The full House passed H.R. 4660, the Commerce, Justice, Science (CJS) and Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2015, on May 30, 2014. It would fund NSF at $7.4 billion, which is 1.9 percent above the President's request.

In the Senate, the Appropriations Committee approved its version of the CJS appropriations bill, S.2437, in June, but the full Senate has not voted on the measure. The Senate bill would fund NSF at $7.3 billion, 1.1 percent above the President's request.
