NSF Congressional Highlight
Full-year Appropriations Bill Passed, NSF Funded at $6.8 Billion for FY 2011

May 23, 2011

Congress passed, and the President signed into law, a full-year continuing appropriations act that funds federal agencies through September 30, 2011. The final version of H.R. 1473 is the result of a bipartisan agreement reached late in the evening of Friday, April 8, averting by hours a threatened government shutdown. On April 14, the House approved the measure by a vote of 260-167. The Senate voted on the same day, approving the measure by a vote of 81-19, clearing the bill for the White House. President Obama signed it into law (P.L. 112-10) the following day.

NSF is funded at approximately $6.8 billion for fiscal year (FY) 2011, a $65 million, or one percent, reduction from the FY 2010 enacted spending level. The FY 2011 figure includes a 0.2 percent across-the-board rescission applied to all non-defense programs.
