U.S. House Approves FY18 Spending Bills, Including Federal Research, Science Budgets; Final Levels Yet To Be Determined

Science: U.S. House approves 2018 spending bills, but process far from finished
“The U.S. House of Representatives [Thursday] took a major step toward setting federal science budgets for the 2018 fiscal year that begins 1 October. But Congress is still far from the finish line, and final spending levels aren’t likely to be finalized until late this year at the earliest. … The good news for the research community is that the 211-to-198 vote by the House largely rejects deep cuts to science programs proposed by President Donald Trump earlier this year…” (Malakoff, 9/14).
