ABSTRACT
The article reports that proposed cuts in U.S. President George W. Bush's budget request for FY 2006 would jeopardize the future of Alabama's agricultural and forestry research program and deal a blow to the state's economy. Under the president's budget proposal, all funding for programs that provide base research monies for the U.S. land-grant universities would be slashed. The budget proposal would cut agricultural and forestry research dollars from the Hatch and McIntire-Stennis acts by half in 2006 and eliminate them entirely in 2007. Animal health funding would be deleted in FY 2006. In addition, current and future research programs would be cut for two emerging agricultural industries that show great potential for future economic development and job creation in Alabama.
