The Department of Energy sent a $17.8 billion budget request to Congress for Fiscal Year 1996, terminating the Advanced Neutron Source (ANS) project. The budget failed to spell out where other promised cuts would come from. Current year funding is $17.5 billion.
DoE requested $2.8 billion for fundamental science research, which is an increase of 3.8% or $102.4 million. This account includes a $100 million or a 10% increase in DoE basic research facilities funding. This new start called the Scientific Facilities Initiative would increase user-facility operations about 30%.
