The FY 11 CR does not have report language; therefore, many programs will be funded either by agency determination or at FY10 levels. For these programs, we have listed the funding level as TBD. *Programs (identified by italics in the Climate and Energy Programs section on page 1) administered by the Department of Energy office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy have been severely cut. While we can’t determine the cut to each individual program yet, the entire office budget has been cut by $440 million. This chart does not identify all programs that have been cut by riders. One such rider eliminates the NOAA National Climate Service, a climate science program designed to provide scientific assistance to farmers, fishery managers, water managers and transportation managers.
