DoD Space Programs Budget Comparison Available The House of Representatives has passed its FY 2012 defense appropriations bill, H.R. 2219, which includes $530 billion in spending – $9 billion less than the President requested for fiscal year 2012. Despite the decrease, the legislation increases funding for the Department of Defense (DoD) by $17 billion over the FY 2011 budget. The Senate Appropriations Committee has yet to present its version of the FY 2012 defense appropriations bill.

The Space Foundation has produced a U.S. Defense space-based and related systems FY 2012 budget comparison document that is available here.
