House passes NASA budget
Posted: Thu, Jun 16, 2005, 9:12 PM ET (0112 GMT)
US Capitol The US House of Representatives passed an appropriations bill Thursday that provides full funding for NASA. The House, on a 418-7 vote, passed HR 2862, an appropriations bill that includes funding for NASA as well as other science agencies and the Departments of Commerce, Justice, and State. The bill provides $16.5 billion for NASA in fiscal year 2006, $15 million more than what President Bush originally requested, although House appropriators did shift several tens of millions of dollars to support aeronautics and science programs at the expense of exploration programs. In a statement, NASA administrator Michael Griffin praised the House for supporting the space agency. The Senate has yet to act on its version of the 2006 budget for NASA.
