S 2837: Commerce, Justice, Science, and Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2017

This would provide funding for the Departments of Commerce and Justice, as well as the National Science Foundation and National Aeronautics and Space Administration in fiscal year 2017.

The bill would increase funding for NSF by $46 million, but all of the new funding would be designated for the acquisition of three ocean research vessels. Research and education funding at NSF would remain at the 2016 enacted level.
