FYI Number 97: July 22, 2004

FY 2005 Defense Department Appropriations Bill Complete

Few appropriations bills are expected to be passed this year as stand-alone bills. Tight funding and policy differences are leading almost everyone to conclude that an omnibus bill containing almost all of the thirteen appropriations bills will be passed, although the schedule is unknown. There are exceptions to this, mostly notably the FY 2005 Department of Defense Appropriations Bill, which cleared a House and Senate conference committee yesterday. With this bill, H.R. 4613, total spending for the 6.1 (Basic Research), 6.2 (Applied Research) and 6.3 (Advanced Technology Development) programs will increase 10.3%.

Under this bill, the following FY 2005 funding changes will occur, as compared to the current budget:
