    FY 2000 Federal Budget

    The Administration released its FY 2000 budget request on February 1, 1999, proposing to spend $78.2 billion for research and development. The highlight of the R&D budget request is the Information Technology for the Twenty-First Century (IT2) initiative, in which six federal research agencies would participate. Congress must approve the budgets of the individual agencies before any of the funds can be spent. It does this through the appropriations process, which culminates in the passage of thirteen separate spending measures later in the year.
