On February 2, President Obama released his proposed budget for Fiscal Year (FY) 2016. The President's proposed budget includes $9.8 billion in discretionary funding for the U.S. Department of Commerce, which is a billion more than the President requested in FY 2015. The amount requested includes $497 million for the International Trade Administration (ITA) and $20 million to expand SelectUSA, a government-wide effort to attract and retain investment in the American economy. The President calls for the expansion of the National Network for Manufacturing Innovation, building on the nine institutes that have already been funded through 2015 with more than $350 million in additional funds to support seven new manufacturing institutes in the Departments of Commerce, Agriculture, Defense, and Energy. The budget proposal also includes a mandatory spending proposal of $1.9 billion to fund the remaining 29 institutes in the network. U.S. Commerce Secretary Penny Pritzker stated that President Obama's budget proposal "prioritizes promoting U.S. trade and investment, spurring high-tech manufacturing and innovation, unleashing more of our data and gathering and acting on environmental intelligence, while also streamlining operations to help businesses grow."
