The House (September 13) and the Senate (September 22) passed the FY 2013 Continuing Resolution (CR) that will fund the agencies and programs of the Federal government until March 27, 2013.
This means that all the riders to bills that abolished programs, some of which had a serious impact on social scientists have been negated. This includes the elimination of funding for: the American Community Survey (ACS), the political science program at NSF, and economics research at NIH.
The CR includes an across-the-board increase of 0.6 percent above FY 2012.
