Budget FY 2013: NIH, NSF

In his proposed $3.8 trillion budget for FY 2013, President Barack Obama froze NIH funding at current fiscal year’s levels: $30.702 billion in discretionary budget authority from Congress and $30.86 billion in overall program level funding. While Obama’s NIH proposal has disappointed advocates of greater federal research funding, the president and HHS say they did their best to balance the desire to fund basic research with the need to contain federal spending. NIH will spend more on NCATS and other programs that support translational medicine. President Obama would raise discretional budget authority for NSF by 4.8%, though total program outlays would fall 9%. Do you like the President’s proposals?
