UPDATE: The House Appropriations Committee has now posted its “partial list of 70 spending cuts” it is proposing for the FY2011 CR.  The list includes the $379 million cut to NASA reported by the National Journal, as well as a $336 million cut to NOAA’s budget, and one of the largest cuts — $1.1 billion — is from the Department of Energy’s Office of Science (the press release does not specify that it is DOE’s Office of Science, but a committee staffer confirmed that it is).  NSF would also get cut by $139 million, and the National Institutes of Health by $1 billion.
