With the passage of a continuing resolution through Thanksgiving giving Congress some breathing room to complete fiscal year (FY) 2020 appropriations, the Senate Appropriations Committee has finally made progress in approving a number of its annual appropriations bills. COSSA has released analyses of three Senate bills that fund agencies important to the social and behavioral sciences:
- Commerce, Justice, Science, and Related Agencies Appropriations Bill, which funds the National Science Foundation (NSF), Department of Justice (DOJ), Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA), and Census Bureau
- Labor, Health and Human Services, Education, and Related Agencies Appropriations Bill, which funds the National Institutes of Health (NIH), Department of Education (ED), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ), and Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) (Note: While details of this bill were released, it has not been considered by the Appropriations Committee)
- Agriculture, Rural Development, Food and Drug Administration, and Related Agencies Appropriations Bill, which funds the Economic Research Service (ERS) and the National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS), as well as the National Institute of Food and Agriculture (NIFA)
Full coverage of FY 2020 appropriations, including analyses of the corresponding House proposals, is available on the COSSA website.
