"The appropriations express" is how a spokesman for Senate Majority Leader Trent Lott (R-MS) describes the Senate in May. If all goes as scheduled, appropriations bills funding the Department of Commerce, Department of Defense, Department of Education, Department of Energy, NASA, and the National Science Foundation will be written during the next five weeks. Now is the time to contact your representative and two senators about these funding bills for FY 2001.

DOD APPROPRIATIONS BILL:

House and Senate conferees reached agreement September 26 on H.R.
4650, the fiscal year 1995 appropriations bill for the Department
of Defense.  The accompanying conference report (House Report
103-747) restores most of the funding for university research that
the House bill had eliminated.

29 Jul 1994

If all goes as scheduled, the full Senate Appropriations Committee
will meet this afternoon to mark up H.R. 4650, the Defense
Appropriations Bill for FY 1995.  There is good news for the
university community in the Defense Appropriations Subcommittee
bill marked-up earlier this week.  Under Senator Inouye's
(D-Hawaii) version of this bill, $821 million of the $900 million
cut by the House in university research funding has been restored.
This matter is, however, far from being settled.
