The latest cut in fuel prices,C. in a statement “The budget sets aspirational goals for research funding which we commend but other than energy research the proposed investments rely on mandatory funding streams that Congress will not seriously consider” “Moreover the President’s budget proposes deep cuts in basic research at the Department of Defense” Rawlings said “This abandonment of the Administration’s earlier commitment to basic Defense research suggests a lack of understanding that tomorrow’s innovations to keep our armed forces the best in the world depend on today’s basic research” The American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (ASBMB) in Rockville Maryland also expressed dismay about the numbers for the National Institutes of Health (NIH) “Frankly this budget does little to capitalize on the enormous bipartisan support for the NIH in Congress” said ASBMB Public Affairs Director Benjamin Corb “To propose a funding level that is unable to sustain the biomedical research enterprise is surprising given the president’s consistent strong support for the agency” The group is “disappointed” that the request “appears to provide a $1 billion increase to the NIH” the statement notes but also calls for a $1 billion cut in the agency’s regular discretionary appropriation The group objects to the White House’s request that Congress make up the difference by dedicating new sources of mandatory spending Representative Lamar Smith (R-TX) the chairman of the Science Space and Technology Committee in the US House of Representatives called the budget request “unrealistic” in a statement “Investments in science and technology have clear benefits for Americans” Smith said “But the president continues to focus on costly ineffective energy subsidies and taxes like a new $1025 per barrel federal tax on oil” Smith was also critical of the request for NASA “This administration cannot continue to tout plans to send astronauts to Mars while strangling the programs that will take us there” he said also noting that “at the same time this proposal shrinks space exploration priorities within NASA’s budget it disproportionately increases Earth Science accounts to more than $2 billion—a 70% increase since 2007 This imbalanced proposal continues to tie our astronauts’ feet to the ground and makes a Mars mission all but impossible” Not surprisingly Rep Eddie Bernice Johnson (D-TX) the panel’s top Democrat had a different take “As in past years the President’s Budget will help ensure that the US can compete in a 21st Century global economy and solidify America’s place as a scientific and technological leader” she said in a statement “I am pleased by so many of the R&D innovation and education provisions in this budget From the investment in Mission Innovation a proposal to double federal investment in clean energy research and development to the Cybersecurity National Action Plan a multi-faceted plan to strengthen the Nation’s cybersecurity to the Climate Action Plan the President is proposing initiatives to help us tackle the major issues we face such as climate change energy security and cyber threats” NASA’s budget drops but science is spared cuts The request proposes that NASA get $19025 billion a 13% drop from levels enacted by Congress this past December But the science mission directorate with a $5601 billion request would sit essentially unchanged from the $5589 billion appropriated by Congress last year One reason for the apparent drop is that the administration’s NASA request—which is about $500 million above what the White House requested in 2016—was essentially set in stone by the time that Congress decided on a relatively cushy 2016 spending level for the agency says Casey Dreier the director of space policy at the Planetary Society in Pasadena California “I don’t think the White House is going out of its way saying ‘We’ve got to cut NASA’” he says “[White House requests] are showing steady progress on their own” But “Congress came out with a very good number late in the game” he adds making today’s request look less generous At the agency there is one prominent new start: The request includes $90 million to develop a space habitat for astronauts which would sit near the moon It would provide a destination beyond low-Earth orbit for astronauts and a use for the agency’s deep-space rocket the Space Launch System—and help the agency demonstrate progress towards sending humans to Mars in the 2030s “There’s a bipartisan consensus emerging around this plan and timetable” said NASA Administrator Charles Bolden who spoke at Langley Research Center in Hampton Virginia on Tuesday as a part of the budget rollout Another development within the human side of NASA is the continued support for the controversial Asteroid Redirect Mission which gets $667 million It would in 2023 send a robot to fetch an asteroid and bring it closer to Earth so that astronauts could study it Within the science division some familiar dynamics are playing out The White House requested $1519 billion for the planetary science division—a drop of nearly 7% from enacted levels “That’s just been the pattern now 5 years in a row” Dreier says The White House may be setting a low target for planetary because in recent years Congress with planetary boosters such as John Culberson (R-TX) leading key spending panels has always plumped the planetary budget back up The White House wants to continue work on a mission to Jupiter’s moon Europa which harbors a habitable ocean under an icy crust But Dreier says the $50 million asked for by the White House is much less than the $175 million that Congress gave in December—which probably means that the mission won’t be able to launch in the early 2020s unless lawmakers provide more money Where the White House tends to dump on NASA’s planetary science program the reverse is true for the agency’s Earth science division It would get a 58% increase to $2032 billion Much of that boost — $131 million — would go to move LandSat 9 the latest model in the longstanding Earth observing satellite system up to a 2021 launch But Republican-controlled Congress rarely appropriates as much to Earth science as the White House would like NASA’s heliophysics division would also get a big 75% boost over enacted levels rising to $700 million The astrophysics division would get $782 million a 7% rise It includes $90 million to support the 2025 launch for the Wide Field Infrared Survey Telescope which will study the mysterious dark energy force that is accelerating the expansion of the universe The $569 million requested to develop the James Webb Space Telescope for a 2018 launch is kept in a separate category As with other science agencies the White House wants to fund some NASA programs with so-called mandatory spending Nearly $750 million of the total request would come through mandatory mechanisms Within the science division the White House assumes that $298 million of the $56 billion request will come from the new mandatory sources of spending That’s an unlikely scenario given Congress’s current makeup —Eric Hand Obama taps mandatory spending for most of NSF increase The Obama administration has requested a $500-million increase for the National Science Foundation (NSF) But $400 million comes from a funding source that the Republican Congress is unlikely to even recognize much less embrace Such is the budgetary legerdemain of a presidency in its last year in office The requested 67% increase for NSF to $7964 billion includes money from both discretionary and mandatory spending streams The first is the pot that Congress appropriates each year and a budget agreement struck last December puts a cap on that amount Only $100 million of NSF’s requested increase draws from that discretionary source; alone it would represent a 13% increase in the agency’s budget The rest of NSF’s increase rests on tapping revenues from the sale of various federal assets a dubious prospect given pledges by conservative legislators to shrink rather than grow overall government spending Within NSF’s overall budget its $6-billion research account would grow by only 08% if Congress limits itself to the discretionary spending pot rather than the 65% sought by the full request NSF’s $880-million education directorate would get a 21% boost via discretionary spending rather than the 83% in the full request In contrast NSF’s entire 13% increase for agency operations a jump of $43 million would come out of discretionary spending The impact of having two accounts within the budget is even more dramatic when one looks at the six research directorates Only engineering would get a boost via discretionary spending a rise of nearly 3% The budgets of the others—biology computing geoscience math/physical sciences and social/behavioral sciences—would essentially stay at current levels With the addition of mandatory spending however the biology directorate could grow its $100-million emerging frontiers program by nearly half NSF’s large facilities construction account contains no mandatory spending But it does have a proposed new start—the first of two regional-class research vessels NSF has requested $106 million to begin building the ships which it estimates will cost a total of $255 million If all goes well science operations would begin in 2021 —Jeffrey Mervis A first look at the 2017 request The budget is out (you can find it here) Here’s a first look Overall it includes a $152 billion request for all federal research and development (R&D) spending a 4% boost over 2016 levels according to the Research and Development chapter in the budget’s Analytical Perspectives section Within that total spending on basic research would rise by 3% or $975 million to $34485 billion The White House says it would pay for some of the increase through so-called mandatory spending which is not subject to the usual annual appropriations process that determines so-called discretionary spending Instead Congress must approve mandatory spending by dedicating specific revenue streams—such as from the sale of government-owned spectrum or oil from the Strategic Petroleum Reserve—to specific programs Lawmakers in Congress are often loath to approve such funding mechanisms however because it gives them less control over annual spending The National Institutes of Health (NIH) the government’s largest research agency would get $331 billion about a $1 billion increase (from both mandatory and discretionary spending) The White House is proposing about $900 million in new discretionary and mandatory spending at three of the largest basic research agencies: the National Science Foundation (NSF) the Department of Energy’s (DOE’s) Office of Science and the laboratories of the Department of Commerce’s National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Together the three agencies would get $146 billion or about a 7% increase over 2016 levels NSF would get a 67% increase or $500 million to $7964 billion But only $100 million of that increase or 13% would be from discretionary spending The budget for NASA’s science office would remain flat at $56 billion The budget calls for a 9% cut to basic science spending at the Department of Defense (DOD) to $2115 billion DOD is a major source of basic science funding for mathematics computer science and engineering research The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency would get an increase of roughly $130 million to about $3 billion Here’s our preview from yesterday: The White House request will honor a 2-year spending agreement that he and Congress embraced this past December The pact set a spending ceiling that was intended to usher in a temporary truce in the annual budget wars But that truce appears to be short-lived: The White House will be asking legislators to boost research activities in many areas through the use of spending mechanisms that sidestep the normal appropriations process And that request isn’t likely to win much support from the Republican majority The carrot in the December agreement was an additional $50 billion in the current (2016) fiscal year for discretionary spending a $11 trillion pot that covers all federally funded research But the agreement was front-loaded: It stipulates essentially flat funding for the fiscal year 2017 that starts in October Buyer’s remorse set in as soon as the ink was dry Fiscally conservative Republicans would like their leaders to tear up the agreement and return to a 2011 law that would lower the 2017 spending ceiling by $30 billion as part of a 10-year effort to shrink the federal deficit Obama and many Democrats would like Congress to go in the opposite direction raising the caps for 2017 and beyond and finding ways to pay for additional spending on research infrastructure education and many other areas Obama made such a case for higher spending last year in his 2016 request But many agencies ended up with far less than what the White House had requested Still the extra money from the budget deal paved the way for healthy increases at many research agencies led by a $2-billion boost for the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Although agencies won’t disclose their detailed budget requests until tomorrow Obama has already announced several research-related initiatives They depend heavily on two funding mechanisms outside the discretionary account funded by general revenues One called mandatory spending would use dollars designated from the sale of a specific government asset like the strategic petroleum reserve or the communications spectrum The other called designated emergency spending is outside the scope of the budget agreement and doesn’t require any offsetting reductions in other government programs A $755 million boost in cancer research at NIH and the Food and Drug Administration has gotten the most attention But the White House has also touted its desire to spend $400 million more a year over 10 years for research on self-guided cars and clean transportation a $120 million effort over 5 years at the National Science Foundation to train more computer science teachers and help more students learn programming a doubling of spending on competitive grants for agricultural research (to $700 million) and hundreds of millions of dollars to address the threat posed by the Zika virus and start developing a vaccine These initiatives would join areas that the administration has previously flagged for rapid growth including precision medicine research to combat antimicrobial drug resistance and the Brain Research through Advancing Innovative Neurotechnologies initiative To be sure the media are already calling Obama’s last budget a doorstop implying that congressional Republicans are planning to ignore it and craft their own spending measure The final agreement is likely to be deferred until after the November election if not until after a new president is inaugurated on 20 January 2017Officials at the University of California San Diego have withdrawn a controversial request to repatriate a pair of 10000-year-old skeletons to the Kumeyaay nation Science’s Origins blog has the twists and turns By: Lifestyle Desk | New Delhi | Published: May 3 2017 10:11 pm Would
