USGS Budget FY 2007

President's Budget Request

On February 6, 2006, the FY 2007 Congressional phrase of the budget process started with the transmittal of the Presidentís Budget to Congress. Since the funding for the USGS is contained in the annual Department of the Interior, Environment, and Related Agencies Appropriation Bill, it is the House and Senate Appropriation Subcommittees with that name, which review and make the initial recommended funding level for USGS. The excel file found below this paragraph displays details of the USGS funding at the budget activity, subactivity, and program element levels for:

USGS Budget FY 2007 Congressional Action

Upon receipt of the Presidentís Budget Request, a series of major steps in the Congressional Appropriations process are undertaken before funds are appropriated to the USGS:

  1. Separate markups by the Interior Appropriations Subcommittees in the House and the Senate.
  2. Separate markups by the Full Appropriations Committees in the House and the Senate.
  3. Separate passage of a bill by the House and the Senate.
  4. Agreement by a Conference Committee consisting of House and Senate members to resolve differences between the separate bills passed by the House and the Senate.
  5. Passage of this Conference agreement by both the House and the Senate.
  6. Presentation of this House-Senate agreement to the President for his signature or veto.

Congressional action regarding the Fiscal Year 2007 appropriation will be displayed as events occur. Two excel files found below this paragraph display USGS funding at the budget activity, subactivity, and program element levels and compare the proposed Presidentís Budget Request to the most recent Congressional action. The first excel simply displays the most recent funding levels. The second excel file contains the same funding levels but also includes numerous footnotes that provide narrative details related to changes to the Presidentís Budget Request.
