Default House and Senate Slash Science Budget Increases

An anonymous reader writes "As reported by Science magazine, Congress has cut science funding increases for fiscal year 2008. This comes in spite of the earlier announced presidential initiative to increase funding for basic research to improve the future economic competitiveness of the United States. At best, funding increases are minor for some agencies such as NIH and NIST. Other agencies received severe cutbacks, like the Department of Energy Office of Science, which received $342 million less than expected. In particular, despite previous international commitments, funding for the ITER fusion reactor experiment is completely cut off. The NOVA neutrino oscillation experiment at Fermilab is also canceled, as well as R&D on the planned International Linear Collider. The Fermilab operating budget is cut by almost 20%, and may result in mass layoffs."Read more of this story at Slashdot.
