House Approves Slimmed Down DOE Budget
8 June 2012 11:49 am
The U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE's) Office of Science would see a slight cut under a 2013 spending bill approved Wednesday by the U.S. House of Representatives. The bill, approved on a largely party-line vote of 255 to 165, essentially tracks a preliminary version approved by the House Appropriations Committee in late April . It would provide DOE with $26.3 billion, about $365 million below its 2012 budget and $1.76 billion below the Obama Administration's request. DOE's Office of Science would get $4.824 billion, about $72.2 million less than its 2012 level and $190.6 million below the request. The Obama Administration has threatened to veto the bill for a variety of reasons, including a reduction in funding for energy research programs.
The full Senate has not yet taken up its version of the 2013 DOE appropriations bill.
