From the FBI to NASA, Here Are Trumps Research Cuts14 days ago
The deep cuts to scientific research in President Trump’s first budget request met resistance from Congress. But federal research spending is already slowing. In the first seven months of 2017 the value of R& D contracts awarded by federal agencies fell 16 percentage from the same period last year, according to data compiled by Bloomberg Government .* The drop-off can’t be attributed just to the churn of a new administration: In the first seven months of Barack Obama’s presidency, research contracts fell merely 3 percent.
