U.S. Research Agencies Would Receive Funding Increases Under New Budget Deal

Science: Budget deal raises hopes for U.S. research agencies
“A new budget deal between the White House and congressional leaders means U.S. research agencies could receive increases on the order of the 4% to 5% that Democrats have already proposed for next year. [Monday’s] agreement, which must be approved by both chambers of Congress, governs spending for fiscal years 2020 and 2021. … The House is expected to vote on the budget agreement this week before it goes on a 6-week summer recess, meaning Democratic leaders will need to rally support quickly. The Senate is scheduled to be in session next week, giving Republican leaders a bit more time if they need it” (Mervis, 7/23).
