Paper Abstract

After decades of growth in federal 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 the result of budget policy changes by the new Majority in Congress; they do not result from a rational reexamination of federal science and technology policy. These policies could have long-term consequences for high-technology industries, especially in California. I will review some of the events of the past year and anticipate the actions of the coming year. I will also try to set out an active agenda for the science and engineering community to follow in helping make decisions at the federal level.
