A recent report from the House Science, Space, and Technology Committee entitled ‘Views and Estimates … on the Fiscal Year 1993 Budget for Civilian R&D” proposes new approaches to federal science policy and a shift in funding from defense to civilian R&D to stimulate economic growth.
In this report the committee's Democratic members recommend increasing civilian R&D spending by an additional $2 billion in fiscal year 1993, followed by a $3 billion transfer in each of the next four years. The increase would be funded by cutting weapons programs and the Strategic Defense Initiative request.
