ESC Urges Increase in FY23 Appropriations for DOE Office of Science

The Energy Sciences Coalition, of which AAU is a member, released a statement urging Congress to appropriate $8.8 billion in FY23 for the Department of Energy Office of Science. The proposed funding level represents an increase of 18% over the FY22 enacted level and is consistent with the bipartisan DOE Science for the Future Act.

The statement notes that the increased funding is needed to “accelerate construction of world-class scientific facilities, support groundbreaking scientific discoveries, advance energy technologies needed for the nation to meet net-zero carbon emissions, develop emerging technologies, and grow a highly skilled and diverse science and technology workforce that is essential for the United States to compete globally.”
