More science budget news: The House today proposed cutting NOAA’s $4.59 billion budget by $103 million.

There already is some squealing about this (see the link above), but note that a $4.49 billion budget for NOAA would still be half a billion dollars more than NOAA’s 2008 budget, which is hardly what I’d call a draconian cut.
