America COMPETES Acts: FY2008-FY2013 Funding Tables

Heather B. Gonzalez
Specialist in Science and Technology Policy

Major provisions of the America COMPETES Reauthorization Act of 2010 are set to expire in 2013. As such, the 113
th Congress will have the opportunity to reconsider this act and its policy contributions. Those contributions include, among other things, funding authorizations for certain federal physical sciences and engineering research programs, as well as selected STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) education programs.

To aid Congress in its deliberations over future funding for these policies, this report tracks historical federal funding associated with the America COMPETES Reauthorization Act of 2010 (P.L. 111-358) and its predecessor, the America COMPETES Act (P.L. 110-69). This report includes two tables summarizing authorizations and funding status for selected provisions of these acts over the course of their respective authorization periods.

This report has been updated to reflect FY2013 funding levels contained in P.L. 113-6 (Consolidated and Further Continuing Appropriations Act, 2013) and the explanatory statement published in the March 11, 2013, Congressional Record (starting on page S1287). Where available, this report has also been updated to reflect FY2013 operational or current plan funding levels for COMPETES-related accounts. This report will be updated to reflect final, actual funding for COMPETES-related accounts when that information becomes available to CRS.
