Federal funding for the Ocean Margin Drilling Program (OMD) may be in jeopardy in Congress. The original budget request by the Carter administration for fiscal year 1982 was $16 million (Eos, Mar. 24, 1981). The Reagan administration Office of Management and Budget recommended reduction to a level of $12 million, but now the program could be scrubbed altogether. Recent action taken by the House Subcommittee on Science, Research, and Technology has included cutting the OMD program from the National Science Foundation FY 1982 budget. This action is sponsored by a Democratic House majority.
