Congress to Review Key Agency Budget Requests Amid More Supplemental Funding Discussions 

Over the past few weeks, Congress has been holding budget oversight hearings on various agencies, working through the fiscal year (FY) 2025 budget process. On May 16, the House Science, Space, and Technology Committee is scheduled to review the National Science Foundation’s (NSF) priorities in the hearing, Oversight and Examination of the National Science Foundation’s Priorities for 2025 and Beyond. COSSA will continue to update on the budget hearings of key agencies as they are held.  

Following emergency supplemental funding passed in late April, Congress is still in discussions regarding foreign aid supplemental packages, with attention split between these packages and the FY 2025 appropriations process. While there has not yet been movement on the twelve appropriations bills in either the House or the Senate, it’s anticipated that these bills will be drafted following the budget hearings in their respective committees. However, with the upcoming election season, all House Representatives and a third of U.S. Senators will be turning towards their own campaigns, signaling a potential disruption to the 2025 budget process.  

Stay tuned to COSSA’s continued coverage of the FY 2025 budget process.
