NSS urges Bush to pick new NASA chief quickly
Posted: Fri, Jan 26, 2001, 1:08 PM ET (1808 GMT)
The National Space Society (NSS) is asking its members to urge President George W. Bush to make a decision on a new NASA Administrator quickly. In an action alert distributed to its members through its web site this week, the organization wants its 25,000 members to contact (by electronic or postal mail) the White House and ask President Bush to appoint a NASA Administrator as soon as possible. While Dan Goldin, appointed by George Bush in 1992, remains at the helm of the space agency, this is seen as a temporary position as the Bush transition team continues its search for a replacement. In the meantime, Bush officials have appointed several acting associate administrators and put Courtney Stadd, Bush transition team coordinator for space, in NASA as Goldin's chief of staff. The new president and his staff has given no timeline on when they plan to announce a new administrator.
