Continuing Resolution Continues through Sept

Criminy. FY06 funding levels for the rest of FY07, though the NIH did get an extra $619.5 million to tide the ICs over. Sort of. I will update payline data as the various ICs list their updates … though most won’t have any new news, I suspect.

“`DIVISION B–CONTINUING APPROPRIATIONS RESOLUTION, 2007

`The following sums are hereby appropriated, out of any money in the Treasury not otherwise appropriated, and out of applicable corporate or other revenues, receipts, and funds, for the several departments, agencies, corporations, and other organizational units of Government for fiscal year 2007, and for other purposes, namely:

`TITLE I–FULL-YEAR CONTINUING APPROPRIATIONS

`Sec. 101. (a) Such amounts as may be necessary, at the level specified in subsection (c) and under the authority and conditions provided in the applicable appropriations Act for fiscal year 2006, for projects or activities (including the costs of direct loans and loan guarantees) that are not otherwise provided for and for which appropriations, funds, or other authority were made available in the following appropriations Acts:

`(5) The Departments of Labor, Health and Human Services, and Education, and Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2006.”

In all its glory, here is the relevant text from HJ Res 20 with regard to appropriations through Sept 30, 2007 (ie, end of fiscal year) for the NIH (full steam ahead for the national children’s health study):

“`Sec. 20614. (a) Notwithstanding section 101, the levels for the following accounts of the Department of Health and Human Services, National Institutes of Health, shall be as follows: `National Institute of Child Health and Human Development’, $1,253,769,000; `National Center for Research Resources’, $1,133,101,000; `National Center on Minority Health and Health Disparities’, $199,405,000; `National Library of Medicine’, $319,910,000; and `Office of the Director’, $1,095,566,000, of which up to $14,000,000 may be used to carry out section 217 of the Department of Health and Human Services Appropriations Act, 2006, $69,000,000 shall be available to carry out the National Children’s Study, and $483,000,000 shall be available for the Common Fund established under section 402A(c)(1) of the Public Health Service Act.

`(b) The seventh, eighth, and ninth provisos under the heading `Department of Health and Human Services, National Institutes of Health, Office of the Director’ in the Department of Health and Human Services Appropriations Act, 2006, pertaining to the National Institutes of Health Roadmap for Medical Research, shall not apply to funds appropriated by this division.

`(c) Funds appropriated by this division to the Institutes and Centers of the National Institutes of Health may be expended for improvements and repairs of facilities, as necessary for the proper and efficient conduct of the activities authorized herein, not to exceed $2,500,000 per project.”

For our friends seeking appropriation levels for the NSF:

“`Sec. 20916. Notwithstanding section 101, the level for `National Science Foundation, Research and Related Activities’ shall be $4,665,950,000, of which not to exceed $485,000,000 shall remain available until expended for Polar research and operations support, and for reimbursement to other Federal agencies for operational and science support and logistical and other related activities for the United States Antarctic Program: Provided, That from funds provided under this section, such sums as are necessary shall be available for the procurement of polar icebreaking services: Provided further, That the National Science Foundation shall reimburse the Coast Guard according to the existing memorandum of agreement.”

The House Appropriations Committee provides a cheat sheet to see what programs will get a bit more to tide them over until the FY08 budget kicks in … what, maybe in 2009 sometime?

    Dear Sir,

    Why do you suspect that most ICs won’t have new news about the 2007 funding payline? The paylines they set now are conservative and besides, they get increased budget.

    Thanks,
    Gang
