Paper Abstract

After decades of growth in federal research and development (R&D) funding, these programs are slated for a one-third cut. Programs to develop technology jointly with the private sector are the focus of deeper cuts, or elimination. These actions are being taken as a result of budget policy changes by the new majority in Congress; they do not result from a rational re- examination of federal science and technology policy. These policies could have long-term consequences for high technology industries, especially in California. I review some of the events of the past year and anticipate the actions of the coming year. I also try to set out an active agenda for the science and engineering community to follow in helping make decisions at the federal level.
