Reports on the continuous financial constraints for research and development programs (R&D) reflected on the budget proposal of U.S. President George W. Bush for the fiscal 2007. The proposal calls for substantial increases in key physical sciences and engineering programs as well as big boosts for alternative energy R&D and the development of new space vehicles. But these increases come at the expense of funding cuts in other parts of the federal research portfolio. Spending for priority programs would enable nondefense R&D to rise by 1.7%, compared to the president's proposed 0.5% cut in all nondefense discretionary domestic programs.
