More on Energy
Today, the House Science, Space, and Technology passed two landmark bills to double down on federal investment in American research and development. The bills significantly increase funding for the National Science Foundation (NSF) and the Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Science.
Thank you, Chairwoman Johnson.
This amendment strikes and replaces the text of H.R. 3593, the DOE Science for the Future Act, to incorporate stakeholder feedback to the underlying bill and make technical changes to the text. I’d like to thank the Chairwoman and her staff for working with us in a bipartisan and cooperative manner to get these necessary changes finalized.
Thank you, Chairwoman Johnson. And thank you to Chairman Bowman, and Ranking Member Lucas, as well, for all your hard work to get us here today. I’ll try not to repeat the many praises we’ve heard thus far for this legislation, even though many of those praises are certainly worth repeating.
Thank you, Chairwoman Johnson, for holding today’s markup of the NSF for the Future Act and the DOE Science for the Future Act.
These comprehensive reauthorization bills of the National Science Foundation and the Department of Energy Office of Science are the culmination of years of work by this Committee to consider the best path forward for two of the most important pieces of America’s federal research enterprise.

Ranking Member Frank Lucas
Thank you Chairwoman for hosting this hearing. Today, we welcome Secretary of Energy Jennifer Granholm to discuss the Department’s priorities for fiscal year 2022 and beyond. I’m looking forward to hearing how the Department will provide robust support for the high-priority research programs and infrastructure carried out by the Department.
