Money!

The Commerce Department budget was passed last week.

The $2,706,313,000 that was budgeted to the PTO is expected to cover all of the fees the Office is expected to collect in FY 2012. It should at least give the Office a fair shot of funding the necessary changes that will be needed to implement the provisions of the recently passed American Invents Act.

You'd like to think that this is an indication that the Office will be more fully funded in future years, but I for one am not holding my breath on that.
