FY11 Appropriations Update

***Updated 8/5/10

House and Senate Appropriations committees and subcommittees made substantial movement in their consideration of FY11 appropriations bills during the monthy of July. However, concerns over the federal deficit combined with the associated election year politics have cast a shadow over the appropriations process. Although appropriations bills will continue to advance through committee, it remains unlikely that most will receive consideration by a full chamber before the November congressional elections. The chart below captures budget items of interest to the UW and the broader higher education/research community. We will update the chart as the process unfolds.
