NOTES on Conference Report (11/5/01)
The House and Senate completed their work on the FY 2002 Energy and Water Bill last week; the bill now awaits the President's signature. After a general reduction of $12.8 million is applied, the final FY02 amount for the Office of Science will be only $53 million higher than the FY01 level.
The conference agreement provides Biologoical and Environmental Research (BER) $527.4 million for FY 2002, a 9.3% increase over FY 2002. Much of this increase, however, includes almost $72 million in earmarks.
Language in the conference report on Advanced Scientific Computing Research (ASCR): "The conferees support the use of available funds for the Scientific Discovery Through Advanced Computing (SciDAC) program and for terascale operating systems development. The conferees urge the Department to maximize the involvement of universities in the ASCR program, so that both the Department and the academic community can share in the latest technology developments in this field."
NOTES on the Senate mark (8/1/01)
Below is the Committee report language on Biological and Environmental Research (BER), which would receive a 10.6% increase over the President's request, but would be down 2.2% over FY 2001.
"The Committee recommendation includes $490,000,000 for biological and environmental research, including $10,000,000 for construction of the laboratory for Comparative and Functional Genomics at Oak Ridge National Laboratory. The recommendation includes an additional $16,000,000 above the requested level for the Genomes to Life program and $10,000,000 in additional funding above the requested level for the low dose effects program. Within the recommended amount, the Committee also recommends $7,000,000 in additional funding for computer upgrades and capital equipment costs at the Environmental Molecular Sciences Laboratory (EMSL); $11,500,000 to complete the positron emission tomography facility at West Virginia University; and funding to continue the following on-going projects: the National Energy Laboratory in Hawaii and the biological effects of exposure to low-level radioactivity. The recommendation also continues the free air carbon dioxide experiments at the current year level.
NOTES on President's FY 2002 request (4/9/01)
Environmental Processes, within BER, is down 0.15% (request: $129.5 million). Environmental Processes continues DOE's support of the U.S. Global Change Research Program (USGCRP). A reduction in the Atmospheric Chemistry and Carbon Cycle subprogram of $1.7 million for completion of two Congressionally directed projects in FY 2001 is offset by increased funding for terrestrial and ocean carbon cycle research (FY 2001 $12.7 million; FY 2002 $13.7 million).
