7 U.S. R&D INVESTMENT Admin FY 2014 R&D Priorities Innovation / Science Clear shifts from D to R (especially use-inspired + applied), and from Defense to Nondefense COMPETES Agencies: $12.6 billion (+18% from 2012) Advanced manufacturing (NIST + elsewhere) Clean Energy Homeland Security (Biodefense facility) Rolling back sequestration Every agency would receive major increases above FY13 post- sequester levels

12 Congress So Far Two budgets: Pre-sequester: Presidents Request and Senate $1.058 trillion Post-Sequester: House (and current law) $967 billion R&D funding decisions so far (mostly) reflect these differences

13 U.S. R&D INVESTMENT Congress So Far (Cont) Areas of (rough) agreement: Defense (including DOE), Homeland Security, planetary science, Veterans-related R&D, STEM reorganization Areas of (rough) disagreement general support but divergent funding: NSF, NIST, NASA exploration systems and technology, DOE Office of Science Clearly different priorities: clean energy R&D, natural resources and environmental science Unknown: NIH USDA: Divergent, but not getting cut in House like other programs

15 Looking Ahead Congress now on recess and the clock is ticking 4 bills through House, none through Senate Big question still remains: how do fit a $1.06 trillion budget into a $967 billion dollar hole? Senate: make the hole bigger House: make the budget smaller Almost certainly headed for a CR Debt ceiling
