FY 17 Science Budgets: DoE Office of Science Gets Slight Increase

si-budget

The final appropriations agreement for FY  2017 provides a 0.8 percent increase for the Department of Energy Office of Science. Five of the office’s six research programs were increased over FY 2016.  Fusion energy was curtailed due to disputes over the progress of the International Thermonuclear Energy Reactor (ITER) project.  The total increase was below the 4.1 percent increase proposed by the Obama Administration.
