breathing life into wooden puppets for over 50 years For all the latest Lifestyle News download Indian Express App More Top NewsThe ghost of former President George W Bush permeates the 2014 budget that Congress released last night His presence is good news for physical scientists but less cheery for biomedical researchers as Congress reserved some of the biggest spending increases for NASA and the Department of Energy (DOE) The National Institutes of Health (NIH) meanwhile got a $1 billion increase that is drawing mixed reviews from research advocates The deal released late on 13 January has its origins in a spending deal that Congress struck on 10 December It eased the pain of the across-the-board cuts known as sequestration calling for $1012 trillion in 2014 discretionary spending That is some $44 billion more than would have been available under a 2011 agreement that called for reducing the federal deficit by a trillion dollars over the next decade But it took about a month for lawmakers to decide how to divvy up the money For agencies that provide major support for the physical sciences the new budget represents a healthy boost over 2013 spending levels which were depressed by the sequester’s 5% bite The National Science Foundation (NSF) will receive $717 billion an increase of 42% for example and NASA’s science programs will get $515 billion a 77% jump DOE’s Office of Science enjoys a 97% increase to $507 billion and DOE’s Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy gets an 112% boost to $280 million The National Institutes of Standards and Technology will see its budget grow 104% to $850 million [wysiwyg_field wf_deltas="4" wf_field="field_assets" wf_formatter="styles_file_original" wf_settings-field_delimiter="" wf_settings-field_multiple_limit="-1"

part of a 2006 initiative launched by the Bush administration to increase funding for the physical sciences Congress formalized the idea in a 2007 law the America COMPETES Act Although agencies never received the generous funding called for by COMPETES which has recently expired after being reauthorized in 2010 its message appears to have survived: The physical sciences need to be strengthened to help the US economy remain strong President Barack Obama has continued that theme in his budget requests including a bid last spring for large increases at several agencies (see table) COMPETES did not cover NIH whose budget had doubled between 1998 and 2004 to $272 billion Since then it has received much smaller boosts—with the huge exception of the 2009 stimulus a one-time boost of $104 billion Congress maintained that pattern of smaller increases this year: NIH’s 2014 budget will rise by 35% to $299 billion The final spending plan wraps up 12 individual appropriation bills in a 1582-page package that is stuffed with provisions that address the concerns of individual legislators Below are some highlights by agency (Look for updates as ScienceInsider continues to peruse the massive package) National Institutes of Health Biomedical research advocates are offering mixed reaction to the NIH numbers “It’s hard not to be pleased with a billion-dollar increase” says David Moore senior director of government relations for the Association of American Medical Colleges in Washington DC But it “won’t adequately reverse the damage done by last year’s budget sequester and ensure the nation’s biomedical research enterprise makes continued progress” says Carrie Wolinetz of United for Medical Research a coalition of academic and industry groups Overall the bill would allow NIH to fund 385 more research grants than it did in 2013 according to a statement from appropriators That should help NIH recover from a drop in 722 competing grants last year compared with 2012 that resulted in a historically low success rate of 168% “It’s good news It’s a really good start in terms of undoing the damage from sequestration” says Jennifer Zeitzer director of legislative relations for the Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology Although there are no big surprises in the omnibus a few provisions stand out Within the total $273 million would go to the Institutional Development Awards (IDeA) That amount would essentially restore sequester cuts to a program which helps states with relatively little NIH funding that the president wanted to trim by $50 million The controversial National Children’s Study would receive $165 million the presequester 2013 level and the same amount requested by the president The bill does not include the president’s request for an additional $40 million for the Cures Acceleration Network within NIH’s translational institute instead restoring its budget only to the 2012 level of $10 million The trans-NIH incubator program known as the Common Fund would receive $533 million an $18 million increase compared with 2013 The bill also contains an unspecified amount within several institutes for NIH’s share of the president’s BRAIN Initiative (Obama wanted NIH to spend $40 million) It does not tag $80 million for Alzheimer’s research at the National Institute on Aging (NIA) as requested by the president But it gives NIA a boost of $130 million in new funding a generous 13% boost over 2013 and “expects that a significant portion” go to Alzheimer’s depending on the quality of proposals according to a report accompanying the bill Lawmakers also order NIH to reopen a tiny science education office it had shuttered last fall and resume generating lesson plans for teachers and museums based on new medical research Those activities were shut down last spring at the same time Obama proposed a major reorganization of federal science education programs But Congress has rejected the plan and told NIH to resume its precollege education activities National Science Foundation While Congress gave the agency all but $10 million of its $210 million request for major new facilities it told NSF officials that projects already under construction should be first at the spending trough That language is good news for the National Ecological Observatory Network the Ocean Observatories Initiative the Daniel Inouye Solar Telescope and an upgrade to the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) But it leaves NSF’s only requested new start the Large Synoptic Survey Telescope (LSST) with just $17 million of its $27 million request However lawmakers also gave NSF the green light to transfer funds to LSST Although the bill falls $405 million short of NSF’s $621 billion request for research and $34 million shy of its $880 million request for education activities Congress saw fit to fully fund the president’s request for two NSF activities—the international ocean drilling program and the Noyce scholars program to train science teachers It also protected EPSCoR a long-running program to build capacity in states that receive little NSF money now specifying that it receive all but $5 million of its requested $15 million increase NASA The space agency’s $176 billion overall budget is a $700 million boost over its 2013 appropriation That includes $515 billion for science a healthy $370 million over its 2013 level of $478 billion Within the $135 billion planetary sciences program which received a 10% hike Congress is asking NASA officials to carve out $80 million to develop plans for a mission to Jupiter’s Europa moon Another $65 million is allocated for the development of the Mars 2020 rover The space agency began preparing the groundwork for the proposed 2020 rover last year—the first new step toward exploring the Red Planet after NASA pulled out of a partnership with the European Space Agency to launch Mars missions in 2016 and 2018 The funding line that the bill makes available for developing the rover is evidence of Congress’s support for a 2020 mission The bill continues a mandate prohibiting NASA from spending more than $8 billion to build the James Webb Space Telescope which is scheduled for launch in 2018 Lawmakers also retained language from previous spending bills that blocks NASA and the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy from spending any money on collaborations with China unless the Obama administration certifies that such interactions don’t pose a threat to national security They also extend a ban on Chinese nationals visiting any NASA facility Congress also expressed its deep skepticism for the administration’s plans to find lasso and drag into Earth’s orbit a smallish asteroid The proposed Asteroid Redirect Mission (ARM) is supposed to be an exercise for astronauts as well as a science mission “The completion of significant preliminary activities is needed to appropriately lay the groundwork for the ARM prior to NASA and Congress making a long-term commitment to this mission concept” the spending bill explains Department of Energy Lawmakers showed their support for the domestic fusion science program at DOE They rejected proposed cuts to several domestic facilities and provided $200 million for the goods and services that the US is contributing to ITER an international fusion test reactor under construction in France But it limits DOE’s cash contribution to ITER’s management organization to $228 million until the Secretary of Energy can certify that the organization is moving to adopt some management reforms recommended by an international panel That certification would allow the US to make its full planned contribution of $32 million for 2014 With reporting from the Science News staff *Update 15 January 5:25 pm: This article has been updated to clarify the bill’s statements on the US contribution to ITER Police Commissioner J K Tripathy maintained, For all the latest
