House Appropriations Committee Marks Up FY 2014 Appropriations Bill

July 17, 2013

The U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Appropriations marked up the FY 2014 Commerce, Justice, Science, and Related Agencies Appropriations Bill (CJS) today and provided $6.995 billion for the National Science Foundation (NSF). This represents an increase of $111.8 million (or 1.6%) over the FY 2013 current funding level, but is $630 million (9%) below the FY 2014 Presidentís request.

The Research and Related Activities (R&RA) account received $5.676 billion. This change is $132.6 million (2.34%) above the FY 2013 current funding level and $536 million (9.45%) below the Presidentís request. The Education and Human Resources (EHR) account is funded at $825 million, a decrease of $8 million from the FY 2013 current funding level, and $55 million (6.7%) below the Presidentís request. The Major Research Equipment and Facilities Construction (MREFC) account is funded at $183 million, a reduction of $13.17 million (7.2%) from the FY 2013 current funding level, and $27 million (14.8%) below the Presidentís request.

The account levels for the Agency Operations and Award Management (AOAM), National Science Board (NSB), and the Office of the Inspector General (OIG) were all held flat with the FY 2013 current funding levels (but all below the FY 2014 Presidentís request to varying degrees).
