Peter Harsha has written an excellent “roundup” of FY 2005 Federal appropriations following Congress’ recent work on the omnibus bill, including the following update on funding for the National Institute of Standards and Technology’s (NIST’s) labs:

[…] NIST Labs: The Labs faced a dire funding situation as a result of last year’s omnibus appropriation, but received some of that back this year in the form of a 10 percent increase, to $379 million. Not as good as the Senate appropriation level of $384 million, but better than the House approved level of $375 million […]

Note: See the recent letter that CRA and USACM sent to Congressional appropriators regarding funding for NIST.
