Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists;Jul1953, Vol. 9 Issue 6, p230
The article reports that a legislation removing the $15,000,000 ceiling on annual appropriations for the National Science Foundation was favorably reported by the U.S. Senate Committee on Labor and Public Welfare on June 11, 1953. Observers say that the prospects for the approval of the legislation seems good since the administration has given it full support, even including it to its program to balance the federal budget. The administration also stated in its revised budget request for NSF that it plans to prioritize NSF in government programs for basic research support.
