On July 17, 2009, the House of Representatives passed H.R. 3183 (H.Rpt. 111-203), the FY2010 Appropriations for the Departments of Energy and Water Development and Related Agencies. The vote was 320 to 97. The total allocation for FY2010 is approximately $33.3 billion, compared to the President's request of $34.4 billion and the FY2009 allocation of $33.2 billion.

The following is a quick analysis of the bill from a California perspective prepared by the California Institute. We apologize for any errors or omissions in our discussion of these documents and would appreciate any feedback on how to make improving corrections. The ordering of items generally reflects their appearance in the bill and does not mean to imply any relative importance.
