It is said that the passage of appropriations for the Departments of Defense (DOD), Homeland Security (DHS), and Veteran's Affairs (VA) has increased the possibility that almost 80% of all R&D funding earmarks have been included that more than half of the fund has been allocated for 2009. Among the factors that will affect R&D budget are the new administration and the changing congressional priorities.
