In order to “restore the high priority that science and technology had previously been afforded in the federal budget,” and “to invest in the future of the United States,” Senator Phil Gramm (R-Texas) recently proposed that the U.S. government double its investment in “basic” science and biomedical research. On January 21, Gramm introduced the National Research Investment Act of 1997 (S. 124), a bill to increase funding for nondefense research from $32.5 billion in 1997 to $65 billion by 2007.
