The Senate’s version of the stimulus bill has been released; well at least the Senate Appropriations committee has released a summary of the spending in the bill (PDF file). It’s not nearly as detailed as what the House committee released – there’s no conference report or bill text. Science is listed very simply:
Tags: economy, NASA, NSF, Senate, stimulus
- National Science Foundation (NSF) Research: $1.4 billion in funding for scientific research, infrastructure and competitive grants.
- National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA): $1.5 Billion for NASA, including $500 million for Earth science missions to provide critical data about the Earth’s resources and climate.
