Appropriations Update: Weiner Amendment Targeting NSF Defeated

Just updating yesterday's post, the amendment to the House FY 06 Science, State, Justice, Commerce Appropriations Act offered by Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-NY) that would strip $126 million from NSF's research account to pay for an increase to the Community Oriented Policing Program (COPS), has been soundly defeated by the House. The final vote was 396-31 against the amendment.

Though there were a few factors at play in the rejection of the amendment, it still is a good sign for NSF that the members of the House weren't willing to cut funding for the agency, even to support local programs.
