NASA may escape planned budget cuts
Posted: Sun, Feb 11, 2001, 5:02 PM ET (2202 GMT)
NASA NASA may be one of the few federal agencies to escape significant cuts when President Bush sends his proposed fiscal year 2002 budget to Congress at the end of this month, the Washington Post reported Saturday. The Post said that the space agency would get about $14 billion in the budget proposal, slightly more than in 2001 and enough "to fully fund all of its programs," according to the front-page article. NASA saw its budget rise in 2001 by several hundred million dollars after seven years of gradual budget cuts that had sliced about a billion from its budget. Other agencies will not be so fortunate: the article said that many agencies would see smaller increases in their budgets than previously planned, if not outright cuts, with the Defense and Education Departments the only major agencies spared. The Bush Administration is expected to submit its budget proposal to Congress on February 28; the House and Senate will then review and revise the proposal over the next several months, with a final version unlikely to be passed before September, based on the schedules of the last several years.
