House Energy and Water 2015 Appropriations Bill report.
The US House of Representatives Appropriations Energy and Water Subcommittee has finished marking up its FY 2015 Appropriations Bill, which contains recommendations for the Department of Energy's fusion and other programs. The report can be found at:
The report would provide the Office of Fusion Energy Sciences with $540 M compared with $505 M appropriated in FY 2014 and $416 M requested in the President's FY 2015 request. Of that, the bill would provide $315 M for the domestic fusion program compared with $305.667 M appropriated in FY 2014 and $266 M requested by the President. In addition, it would provide $225 M for US contributions to the ITER project compared to $200 M appropriated in FY 2014 and $150 M requested by the President. Detailed allocations for subprograms are on pages 118-120 at the report link above.
The report provides to NNSA's Inertial Confinement Fusion and High Yield Campaign $511.993 M which is $1.964 M below the FY 2014 appropriation, $0.902 M below the President's request.
The House bill must eventually be reconciled with a similar bill in the Senat, passed by both Houses of Congress and then signed by the President.
