NSF Congressional Highlight
House Subcommittee Marks Up FY 2012 Appropriations Bill

July 8, 2011

The House Commerce, Justice, Science, and Related Agencies Appropriations Subcommittee marked up its FY 2012 appropriations bill today and provided $6.9 billion for the National Science Foundation (NSF). The subcommittee held NSF's budget flat relative to the FY 2011 enacted level, but changed the appropriated levels for three of NSF's six accounts.

The Research and Related Activities account received $5.6 billion, an increase of $43 million, or 1 percent, over the FY 2011 enacted level. The provision is $647 million, or 10 percent, below the President's request. The Education and Human Resources account is funded at $835 million, a decrease of $26 million, or 3 percent, below the FY 2011 enacted level and $76 million, or 8 percent, below the President's request. The Major Research Equipment and Facilities Construction account is funded at $100 million, $17 million below the FY 2011 enacted level and $125 million below the requested level, 15 and 55 percent, respectively. The Agency Operations and Award Management, National Science Board, and Office of the Inspector General account levels equal the FY 2011 enacted levels.

The full committee is expected to mark up the bill on Wednesday, July 13.
