DOE funding up in FY 1992


  • Susan Bush


The Senate Appropriations Committee approved a $21.98 billion energy and water spending bill (HR2427) on June 12, an increase of about $1 billion over FY 1991's appropriation. Half would go to nuclear defense programs and cleanup. The bill is expected to go the Senate floor for a vote soon, after which a conference committee will resolve differences between the House and Senate versions of the bill.
