800+ million for Fusion Advances

The $33.2 billion bill drawn up by the committee is more than $2 billion up on that requested by the President. It would increase funding for renewable energy and energy efficiency programs, as well as supporting new initiatives to find new energy sources while reducing overall energy consumption. The Department of Energy (DoE) would receive $27.2 billion, $2.7 billion up on 2008 and $1.3 billion over the amount requested by the President. Included in that would be $862 million earmarked for "basic research to address scientific barriers to advancing technologies for energy generation and storage such as fusion energy and advanced batteries." It is not clear whether this will affect US participation in the Iter international fusion reactor being built in France: in December 2007 the US said it would have to pull out of helping to finance the project when Congress slashed the funds available in fiscal 2008.

Other DoE research and development projects, including the Generation IV reactor program and the Next Generation Nuclear Plant, and the Nuclear Power 2010 initiative, would also enjoy a slice of the funding.
I doubt if BFRs are on the list for any of the $$$$$$$$s in this budget.
Engineering is the art of making what you want from what you can get at a profit.
