Major provisions of the America COMPETES Reauthorization Act of 2010 are set to expire in  2013. As such, the 113th Congress will have the opportunity to reconsider this act and its policy  contributions. Those contributions include, among other things, funding authorizations for certain  federal physical sciences and engineering research programs, as well as selected STEM (i.e.,  science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) education programs.

To aid Congress in its deliberations over future funding for these policies, this report tracks  historical federal funding associated with the America COMPETES Reauthorization Act of 2010  (P.L. 111-358) and its predecessor, the America COMPETES Act (P.L. 110-69). This report  includes two tables summarizing authorizations and funding status for selected provisions of  these acts over the course of their respective authorization periods. (See Table 1 and Table 2.)

This report has been updated to reflect FY2013 enacted funding levels—as contained in P.L. 113-  6 (Consolidated and Further Continuing Appropriations Act, 2013)—for specified COMPETES-  related accounts. The FY2013 enacted funding levels contained herein do not account for the  effects of sequestration, or other legal determinations made by OMB that may affect the final  appropriations levels. This report will be updated to reflect actual funding for specified COMPETES-related accounts when that information becomes available to CRS.
