By Smith, Marcia S.

Excerpt
Summary: Science and technology have a pervasive influence over a wide range of issues confronting the nation. Decisions on how much federal funding to invest in research and development (R&D), and determining what programs have the highest priority, may have implications for homeland security, new high technology industries, government/private sector cooperation in R&D, and myriad other areas. This report provides an overview of key science and technology policy issues pending before Congress, and identifies other CRS reports that treat them in more depth. This report is updated occasionally. Many of the CRS reports cited herein are updated more frequently and should be consulted for timely information.
