For all the latest Chandigarh News,C. in a statement “Short of comprehensive tax reform this is one of the most significant steps Congress has taken in decades to improve our out-of-date tax code for businesses” Just a year ago a major effort to pass a tax bill that included a permanent R&D credit ended in chaos and partisan bickering on the floor of the House of Representatives “This place is dysfunctional” Representative Jim McDermott (D–WA) said at the time adding that he was pessimistic about the credit’s future “Everyone should take note of today the third of December” he said then warning that “next year right about this time we will be right back here with the same bill” He was right about the timing Only this time it appears the outcome will be far more to his liking White-nose bat study funded Geological Survey gets a small increase By David Malakoff The US Geological Survey (USGS) would get a $17 million increase or 16% to $1062 billion According a report accompanying the bill the total includes an additional $500000 to study white-nose syndrome the fungal disease that has been killing millions of bats The bill also provides $500000 to study new and emerging wildlife diseases and adds $1 million to USGS’s $26-million volcano hazards programs specifically to repair and upgrade systems that focus on monitoring “high-threat” volcanoes Lawmakers rejected a White House request to build and launch a thermal imaging instrument that would have observed Earth’s surface and they erased a $2-million cut from USGS’s minerals mapping program that the White House had proposed FDA gets 5% bump and ban on gene editing By Kelly Servick Lawmakers called for more health research on e-cigarettes wwwvaping360com Count the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) among the winners in today’s budget agreement The bill provides the agency with about $272 billion not including $196 billion in anticipated user fees collected from companies applying for FDA review The number is just shy of the president’s $275 billion request and represents an increase of nearly 5% over 2015 levels The bump is “pretty darned good in this environment” says Steven Grossman deputy executive director of the Alliance for a Stronger FDA Lawmakers provided support for FDA’s contribution to two major research initiatives laid out in President Obama’s budget request It would receive $87 million to extend its review of antibacterial drugs and oversight of antibiotics in livestock as part of the Combating Antibiotic-Resistant Bacteria (CARB) initiative a national strategy that has prompted Congress to nearly double overall spending on antibiotic resistance across several agencies to $774 million in 2016 The agency will also receive $24 million for its initial contribution to the new government-wide Precision Medicine Initiative aimed at ensuring the accuracy of genetic tests (Yesterday the agency launched precisionFDA a web platform for diagnostics companies researchers and healthcare providers to validate genetic tests against reference materials and share their results) Notably absent is a proposal adopted earlier this year by the US House of Representatives that would have exempted many e-cigarette manufacturers from FDA’s pre-market review process if their products are already on the market before the agency issues its upcoming “final rule” to regulate them The bill does allocate $1 million for a “contract” between the FDA’s Center for Tobacco Products and the National Academy of Medicine to conduct a more thorough study of the health effects of e-cigarettes and suggest how federal funds should be spent on future e-cigarette research In line with the views of most biomedical researchers lawmakers struck a note of caution about the implications of new gene editing techniques that make heritable changes to human embryos The bill forbids FDA from using funds in the bill to evaluate—or even “acknowledge the receipt of”—submissions for therapies based on research that modifies embryos Such research is not currently eligible for NIH funding and is still years from producing therapies that regulators would have to green light before they could be tested in humans NASA science budget rises 66% Planetary science sees biggest boost with continued support for a Europa mission By Eric Hand An ocean underneath Europa’s icy shell is a potential habitat for life NASA/JPL-Caltech It’s the best day for space science in years: NASA’s science budget rises to $56 billion in the budget agreement that Congress reached today a jump of 66% from 2015 levels And as usual NASA’s planetary science division a favorite of key congressional appropriators did best of all with a 134% boost to $163 billion Language in the bill directs the agency not only to apply $175 million to a mission to Jupiter’s moon Europa but also that the mission should have a lander component Casey Dreier director of advocacy for the Planetary Society in Pasadena California says it’s the best budget the division has seen in a decade “Pleased is an understatement” he says Like many federal agencies accustomed to skimpy budget increases or none at all NASA did well overall in the budget agreement rising 71% to $193 billion The boost was due to an earlier budget agreement that lifted spending caps across the federal budget allowing appropriators some wiggle room The planetary science division was a chief recipient Part of the love stems from planetary science champions like Representative John Culberson (R-TX) who chairs the spending panel that oversees NASA He has long been obsessed with getting a mission to Europa which harbors a salty ocean under an icy shell—perhaps the best habitat for potential life elsewhere in the solar system NASA formally began a mission earlier this year in the president’s 2016 budget request after years of reluctance from the White House’s Office of Management and Budget However the Europa mission is currently being designed as a spacecraft that will pursue a series of flybys The new appropriations bill tasks the agency with including a lander component which will add to the cost of the multi-billion-dollar mission “The lander won’t be free” says Dreier who adds that the bill’s directive at least signals the support of Congress The bill also directs that the mission launch no later than 2022 using the agency’s still-under-development Space Launch System rocket a heavy lift vehicle that could power the Europa mission to Jupiter in a hurry Also within planetary science the bill boosts the budget of the low-cost competitive Discovery program to $189 million which is a good sign that the agency will be able to get on to a faster path with its launches Planetary science division director James Green has said that a good budget would allow NASA to select two of five finalists in the most recent competition NASA’s Earth science budget will be $192 billion a rise of 84% from 2015 levels “It could be a turning point” says Lexi Shultz director of public affairs at the American Geophysical Union (AGU) “It takes us out of the hunker-down mentality” The Earth science division funding nearly matches the president’s budget request—a sign that the anti-climate science rumblings from House Republicans dissipated in the final reckoning Last year language was inserted into the final appropriations for the National Science Foundation (NSF) that limited some of its climate science research Not only did that language disappear this year for the NSF but none appeared in NASA’s Earth science division Shultz says “Part of the story is language that isn’t there” she says Dreier was also pleased to see the boost since Earth science funding was often targeted as a way for Congress to support rises within planetary science “We’re not pitting sciences against each other” he says “The overall pie is growing” At an AGU town hall meeting today in San Francisco NASA earth science division director Mike Freilich told scientists that “we ended up … [in] quite a good place” One minor point of friction remains: The bill directs NASA to scrap plans for the Thermal-Infrared Free-Flyer a $180 million mission that the White House proposed in February It would be a backup in infrared wavelengths to the long-running Landsat Earth observation program Instead Congress gives NASA $100 million to pursue the development of Landsat-9 as a rough copy of its predecessor which launched in 2013 In the astrophysics division the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) still dominates: It will receive $620 million in funding towards its 2018 launch while the rest of the division gets $730 million a rise of 67% over previous years But there are also the first signs of life for the division after JWST: Congress is giving NASA $90 million to begin work on the Wide Field Infrared Space Telescope which will aid in the search to understand dark matter and dark energy With a new lease on life the Stratospheric Observatory for Infrared Astronomy (SOFIA) also continues to be funded with $85 million for operations In 2014 the administration tried to cancel the expensive oft-criticized observatory which contains a 2-meter telescope in the rear of a converted 747 jet But Congress rushed to its aid Bill language also orders NASA to give the mission a free pass from outside scrutiny of its scientific productivity SOFIA will be excluded from the agency’s 2016 “senior review” of its astrophysics portfolio because in the eyes of appropriators the mission has still not reached full operations Heliophysics the smallest of NASA’s four science divisions is the only one to feel a budget squeeze Its budget will drop 18% to $650 million NOAA research rises 4% in new budget Final agreement emphasizes commercialization over agency priorities By Carolyn Gramling The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) stands to receive $577 billion an increase of 6% over current levels That includes $462 million for the Office of Oceanic and Atmospheric Research (OAR) the agency’s main research arm a 4% increase Several of the key requests in the White House’s budget were rejected however The budget provides only $58 million for climate research instead of the requested $89 million and $10 million for ocean acidification research rather than the requested jump to $30 million Lawmakers directed NOAA to set aside $80 million for construction of a new research vessel just over half of the White House’s request for $147 million but noted that they anticipate requests for additional funding for outfitting the vessel and developing new sensors in coming years NOAA was also directed to enter into at least one pilot contract to “assess the potential viability of commercial weather data in its weather modeling and forecasting” That could nudge NOAA into licensing agreements with companies such as Spire or PlanetiQ which are deploying constellations of CubeSats that listen for GPS signals skimming through the atmosphere and turn that into valuable atmospheric data The language also points to an ongoing struggle between NOAA and Congress over the management of fish stocks in the Gulf of Mexico Legislators embraced a plan to push the state fishery boundaries of Louisiana Mississippi and Alabama from three nautical miles offshore out to nine nautical miles (this was already true for Texas and Florida) It would effectively be extending the fishing season for those Gulf states by giving boats access to more territory under state control The lawmakers also directed Congress to use independent fish stock assessments in addition to NOAA assessments when determining fish quotas NOAA’s Polar Follow-on mission intended to fill a pending gap in weather data received $370 million The language notes that NOAA’s mission for polar orbiting weather satellites “continues on a tenuous path” It directs the administration to focus on staying on schedule and within budget for the Joint Polar Satellite System (JPSS) to be launched in 2017 All things considered the NOAA budget released today is “decently healthy” says Jeff Watters director of government relations at the Ocean Conservancy in Washington DC Even some areas that weren’t highly funded – for example ocean acidification research – still received a slight boost over the previous fiscal year “It’s not the massive increase that the president requested but it is a recognition that there’s a long way to go in terms of what we need to know about this issue” Lawmakers had also specifically mentioned that the National Ocean Policy (NOP) wouldn’t receive any funds in the FY16 budget – noting that no funds had been requested either The NOP was created in 2010 to improve environmental stewardship of US coastal oceans and great lakes; in 2013 the White House announced an “implementation plan” for the policy intended to help translate its goals into specific actions coordinated among agencies?
