House Republicans made deep cuts in the Science and Technology Directorate’s budget in 2011, and in a compromise with Senate Democrats, it ended up with $668 million for fiscal 2012. President Obama requested $831 million for this fiscal year. The Senate agreed; the House provided $695 million.

Because no budget was passed, the government is running on a continuing resolution that keeps the level at $668 million.
