The President's Fiscal Year 2006 Budget
Request The Department of the Interior (DOI)
received a proposed total budget of 10.8
billion. The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) would
receive 933.5 million, a decrease of 1.9
million from last year. Within USGS, the proposal
would fully fund all fixed costs, provide
increases for hazards, mapping and seismic
monitoring programs and decreases for mineral and
water programs. The Mineral Resources Program
would receive a 53 cut, leaving the program with
only 25 million in FY06.
